Here is my lastest rocking chair that I just finished up and delivered to a customer in OK.Client wanted all black walnut with no other accents in contrasting woods which is a little different than my normal chairs. Finish is a mix of Tung,Linseed and Poly.

You may not have been able to use contrasting woods like you are so skilled at, but your use of grain and sap wood is stunning. The head rest is amazing. It really accentuates your wonderful carving and shaping. Awesome chair, thanks for sharing.

I feel that you just ask the wood to take this shape and it just obey, that is a fantastic chair.

Gosh Scott, there are so many posts any more that I almost missed this one. Just a great chair. Well done, indeed.

You found enough contrast in the grain of the walnut to make it look more interesting.

very nice chair. I like the solo-walnut. Very talented couple, you both are.
