Yes, it is a design I came up with. Maloof inspired, but I tried to throw my own spin on it.

Magnificent, fancy and appears to be quite comfortable. Someone will spend countless hours of enjoyment. Apparently the padauk and cedar complement themselves in movement and expansion/contraction??

Congratulations – on a beautiful chair and on winning Best of Show. A very nice design and the wood is beautiful. Does Port Orford White Cedar have the same characteristics as other varieties of Cedar? We can only grow Easter Red Cedar around here.Thanks for posting.

Port Orford cedar was very popular for shipbuilding and has a very beautiful look. We had a blight here about 10-12 years ago and many of them died off, but they are coming back well. There is a luthier south of me that uses it for his guitars and they are beautiful I bought a piece of highly figured P.O. cedar about 4 years ago and it should be about ready to play with, I will have to go in the shop and hunt it down. ;)

Crazy looking rocker, and that’s a compliment. When I was in the Navy I was stationed with a Dennis Bork and he was from Brandon. Do you know him… Ed???

I don’t think I know that name, but I don’t know many people in town. I am kind of hermit and don’t get out of my shop much.
