Derek, thanks for the link to this video series with Sam Maloof. I had not seen t his before. I watched the first segment and I'm sure it will be a big help when I try to make a Maloof style rocker.

Thanks for that link Derek.

I've just spent a few hours this afternoon watching all 13 videos.

Sam looked to be a fascinating character, and watching him make that chair, basically from memory and just eyeing up everything was just brilliant.

all i can say is wow! woodbridge (can i call you woody) that is a lovely piece of work, was the back piece made from a single piece of wood? you have achieved an amazing finish, the whole thing almost looks moulded, when i first saw that hat i printed a picture for my inspiration folder because i thought that it would make a lovely frame for a mirror, a chair back didnt even occur to me, as a matter of interest, where did you source your walnut for your maloof chair? i have been trying to source some nice walnut for a project of my own but have not been having much luck so far,

Thanks for the kind words.
 
I have been on a chair kick these last fews years as a hobby woodworker so I look at most things and think how it might look as a chair.
 
The in-progress photo below shows the joints that make up the back. Lots of planing to get the joints to tighten up. The finish is water based stain with 4 coats of satin finish urethane.
 

My next chair is based on a spoon design.

It is still in progress. I should have it finished in a couple of weeks.
 

I live in Ontario Canada, (Woodbridge to be exact, which is just north of Toronto) so I am not sure my walnut supplier will be useful to you. It's from a place called "Hardship Acres" in a small town called Elmvale about 100 km north of Toronto.

I first came across the Maloof Joint a few years ago and it seems it was originated by him. I have since come across it a few times and it always seems to be referred to as a "Maloof Join"
