Sam Maloof style Rocked I made from Flaming or Curley Cherry I found when I was in Amish country in Southern Tn. where I often buy Kiln dried Lumber from Mr. Yoder. On this day I spied some (undressed boards) Cherry Boards that ranged from 14” to 16” wide and 2” thick. As I brushed the saw dust away I could that these boards had a very figured grain,I purchased two of the boards just to see what lay beneath the surface and, I was not dissapointed when I ran them through the Planer they were Beautiful. In fact I drove back the next day and loaded up with boards cut from the same tree, over a 100 mile round trip and well worth it. This for me was a unique find. The accents are Black Walnut.
This is the 2nd. Maloof Style Rocker I have made using Scott Morrisons plans. Thanks for looking.
