    Made from cherry I milled.
    At least this is one Christmas present I don't need to buy at the shopping mall.
    I see making more of these in my future.

    Absolutely, here is the info on the joints and some close ups of the joints.

    This being a Maloof Rocker, I used all the traditional joints he used in building his. I got patterns for this project from Charles Brock.

    Headrest to back supports/legs are a butt joint, epoxy and 3 screws, Arms to back support/legs is butt joint, epoxy and 1 screw. Arms to front legs is butt joint with 1/2" dowel. Legs to rockers are butt joint and 1/2" dowel.
    The real cool joints are the joints for the leg to the seat, these are the joints I took pictures of. This joint is Maloof's classic joint he used for chairs, it hard to explain, but easy to look up on the internet. In the 3rd photo you will see 2 plugs, those cover screws used to help add extra support to the leg seat joint.

    Construction of this chair is rather time consuming but well worth it in my opinion. It took hours to shape, carve, sand, and detail all the parts to this chair.

    Brian, where abouts in PA are you? If I asked this before, I'm getting old, and forgot. I'm just outside Frederick, MD, Joe.

    I believe we spoke before about me getting some walnut from you.

    Yep, I remember, those logs are still on Doc's burn pile. I'll be going over there next week with my splitter to load up on firewood. Maybe I'll pull them out while I have the trailer there, Joe.

    Seems like I never have enough time to get anything done anymore. Haven't done any milling since early spring. Still buying saws but no time to use them! Lol

    Bought a Leigh dovetail jig 6 months ago. Haven't touched it yet. The projects needing dovetails keep stacking up and will have to wait at least another 6 months.
    Time keeps on slipping, slip'n, slip'n into the future.

    I bought one many years ago, I found it quite complicated to use and haven't touched it in years.

    It did turn out nice joints when I did use it, but I sure hated the set up time and went back to a different jig that I also have...

    We're probably all in the same boat. Plenty of tools and ideas but never get much accomplished. Still doesn't stop me from getting more tools though.

    I owned/ran a cabinet shop for MANY years, now in retirement I find myself picking easier and easier things to build!

    That's just the opposite of what I "thought" would happen...

    It seems very granular. Very flexible. The other one I have is a set size for half blind dovetails only. That gets old pretty quick, even if it is a fast way to mow through 'em. One wet Winter and I'll know for sure.
