Hey Everyone I have not posted on LJ for a little bit here is the reason why.Just finished and delivered these three rocking chairs to a good home in OK.One rocker is Curly cherry w/cherry burl ,second a curly walnut with walnut burl then the last curly cherry with redwood burl.These rockers are a little tougher than my normal rockers due to the burl wood you have to really watch the grain directions and stabilize week spots.I was pretty happy with the end result though.

Thank you for looking!!!

I’m glad you didn’t ask us to choose a favorite out of the three. They are all fantastic!

Gorgeous! That Walnut burl on the Maple back slat is a wonderful contrast.
