Cherry Burl Rocker-Thought I would share my latest rocking chair. It is made of a great piece of Cherry burl that was quite a find in our area. The seat, headrest and arms are all out of the same piece of burl. The rest of the rocker is cherry. This was an incredible rocker.

The burl makes it look like there is leather on the arm rest and seat. A gorgeous and superb job!
