My good friend and an excellent woodworker Randy Child, from Southern California, had the privilege to get to know Sam Maloof , and Sam actually gave Randy a set of his patterns for his world-famous rocker, Randy has made numerous of them , so in our conversations I ask Randy if he had ever considered a class, he said no he didn’t really have the place to do it and had never taught a class, then in further conversation I as him if he would consider coming here and we do the class, he agreed.
This class will not be for the faint of heart, it will be a week of very long days and very intense work,and I can assure you there will be alot of home work when you get home, there can be no more than 4 people, and the price will be 2k to 2500.00 , not cheap either, but if there is enough interest , we will see what we can set up, as well I will have to source some gorgeous tiger maple, unless there is another preference.
This is a chance to build this rocker off of Sams actual patterns with some one who knows the rocker inside and out,, so for me its a very rare opportunity, I personally don’t want to miss, so I am thinking a late spring or summer class, and if there is enough interest we will do 2 , so if you have an interest please let me know and after the first of the year We will look to setting it up.

Rocking and rolling to-day and filming the show so alot to get done, its one of those times , where we have gotten everyone squared away on their projects and all seems to be good and calm, so now its time for me to get the haul A** on and get my stuff done, so looks like some long days and nights, but we will make it, always do, after all its just wood and finishing, so its off to film , change shirts then get the saws going..
