  1. It's rocker update time. I drilled and screwed all the legs on and I drilled the dowel holes in the top of the front legs. Then onto the arms, the first step is cutting 6 degrees off the bottom at the front. This is the area that will contact the top of the front leg. Then I clamped the arm blank to the chair to find the correct angle for the rear where it contacts the back leg. After that I cut the angle at the back of the arm blank, I then marked for the dowel location on the based of the front of the arm and drilled the dowel hole. After drilling the hole for the dowel I
  2. I'm definitely not achieving anywhere near close to a product that Sam would've produced but it's coming along nicely for my first attempt. I think we can learn so much from woodworkers through history with regards to beauty, functionality and longevity of the piece. Unfortunately a lot of people no longer want heirloom furniture because either they fear it will go out of style or it is too expensive when compared with cheap Ikea junk. Although I believe that the Maloof rocker transcends the risk of going out of style because it is elegant and both complex and simple at the same time.
  3. So here is the latest update. The front legs are turned. I cut the 6 degree angle on the back legs, cut the dadoes and routed the round-over. I also used the bandsaw to cut away some excess material on the back legs. Here are the legs. And after a bit of fine fitting with the router plane, a chisel and some sandpaper. I just need to drill the holes for the dowels in the front legs, then drill the screw holes and screw all the legs on. Next step is the arms and headrest. After the arms and headrest are done I'll start the sculpting alongside making th
  4. Re-entry from last month. This is my second scratch build (ironically finished before my first). I built it partly at home and partly at a woodworking club I am a part of. I made it because everyone needs a strat in their collection and it gives me some more experience prior to fully delving into more complicated builds like my 12-string Rick Copy. Name - Desert Colours Body - Australian Red Cedar Neck - Queensland Maple Fretboard - West Australian Sheoak There are side dots but obviously no fretboard dots because I didn't want to interrupt the figure o
  5. Haha. All going well I hope to be able to get the dadoes cut in the back legs this weekend and then I'll be able to do a mock up with all 4 legs.
  6. Just a small update. Front legs now have a rough shape, the dado has been cut and roundover put on the required edges. Next step is the turn them on the lathe. Test fit on seat. I've rough cut 3 of the 7 spindles. I'll actually make 9 so that I have a couple extras as spares. I've also made and glued the adder blocks to the back legs. These will be now be ripped at a 6 degree angle at the table saw to give me the required splay for the back legs.
  7. Thanks mate. No CNC, I haven't got the space at the moment. I used a dado blade on table saw for the front notches then cleaned them up with a router plane. Then a normal blade to cut the rear notches. After that I used the router table to do the rebates.
  8. Well I may as well kick things off for this month. This is my second scratch build (ironically finished before my first). I built it partly at home and partly at a woodworking club I am a part of. I made it because everyone needs a strat in their collection and it gives me some more experience prior to fully delving into more complicated builds like my 12-string Rick Copy.

  9. All hardware now on. Time for a weigh in. And for those of you who speak the historic language of pounds and ounces. A couple of shots from today. I'll try to get some better ones tomorrow when there is a bit more light. I just need to level and crown the frets then I can string it up.
  10. Assembly time. Need to file a small amount off the pickguard where it goes around the bridge.
  11. I've cut the purfling channel and I'm working on the dry fit.
  12. Rebates cut on leg joints. Seat all glued up.
  13. Ok here is the most recent update. I have removed a lot of the excess wood with the band saw on boards 2, 3 and 4. And I've started blending in areas that get missed by the bandsaw with a 60 grit disc on my angle grinder. I've also cut out the notches for the front legs. My next step with the seat is the clean up the front leg notches with my router plane and then I can do the rebates (the router bits I ordered have arrived) for the front and back legs. After that there is a bit more shaping to be done with the angle grinder and then I can glue up the seat. Front on vi
  14. Hey mate, you should get an email now with a Google Drive link.
