Build A Sculptured Rocker
Do you remember the first time you saw a sculptured rocking chair in the style of Sam Maloof? If you are a fine woodworker, the inspiration moved the project to the top of your bucket list and you could not wait to build one. In 1983 I had that experience when I saw a picture of one in Fine Woodworking Magazine. Those beautiful flowing lines made it look as if it were moving even when at rest. It appeared to have been carved from one block of wood as each part curved from one to another. With all those curves and sculpted lines how do you start, how can one find the reference points from which to build one? And the joinery is just too much to comprehend!
After more than a decade of helping woodworkers build their sculptured rocker, I can help you build yours! Start with the “Build A Sculptured Rocker with Charles Brock” Project Bundle.
What You Learn
The bundle will teach you how to: (1) Choose and order wood for your project; (2) Scoop out the deep saddle; (3) Craft the unique visible seat-to-leg joinery; (4) Shape, sculpt and assemble the flowing headrest, arms, and spindles (5) Laminate and carve the signature laminated rockers; (6) Assemble the rocker with the proper glue, screws, and plugs (7) Carve, sand and finish the chair to taste, creating a sculptured rocker with a final touch of your own artistry.
What You Get
The “Build a Sculptured Rocker with Charles Brock” bundle contains the all-new Six Hour “Streaming Rocker Video Series” as well as the original 2 DVDs, book, and full-sized set of the “8/4” paper patterns. (Means you can build the rocker without having to have any stock thicker than 8/4=2 inches). When the original bundle was produced, DVDs were the thing. Now most customers stream videos on their computers. The DVDs are currently included in each bundle in case you don’t have a good internet connection.
This instructional bundle is all you will need to craft your own sculptured rocker.
Sculptured Rocker Bundle vs. Pro Rocker Bundle
The Original “Maloof Inspired” Sculptured Rocker Bundle
The original Sculptured Rocker bundle was produced over 10 years ago. It has helped coach thousands through crafting their heirloom rocking chair. I receive their pictures all the time. The construction and design of the chair has continued to develop. I now build a chair that can be built with 8/4 lumber (like the sculptured rocker pictured below). It is also more comfortable with more flowing organic lines than the original rocker. To be up-to-date I now have available the brand new “Streaming Rocker Video Series” that contains everything I know about building my newest sculptured rocking chairs. I am up dating all the time and can add new chapters and skill videos to the Series. Also each new bundle comes with a “Quick Start Guide.” You will find the newest cut list for your rocker and the information you will need to get off to a great start!
