I created this Custom Black Walnut Wood Seat Rocking Chair for a show 12 years ago. This Custom Wood Seat Rocking Chair has traveled across this incredible nation several times and has been showed at five large craft shows. When a #1 Tom McKeever Custom Wood Seat Rocker can still be in my possession It makes me wonder ware all of the collectors are. I guess most people do not tend to have foresight at birth but I thought that as we grow we tend to have some through trial and ouch that hearts. History has shown time and time again that early works by skilled people weather it be Custom Furniture or art are valued much grater than they were purchased for. Perhaps there is something wrong with this Custom Walnut Wood Seat Rocker? Perhaps there is not one person in this incredible nation that has room for another Custom Rocker? Perhaps there is not one person in this incredible that has retained their foresight do to the financial trauma that this remarkable nation has been hit with? Perhaps some smelling salts are needed to wake up some unconscious collectors sleeping some ware in this beautiful nation? To me this Custom Rocking Chair is just like a lost puppy following me around. I do not want it and I think that there is someone out there that would like to give a #1 Noble Bear Custom Wood Seat Rocker a home to live in. This Custom Wood Seat Rocking Chair I created to accompany my Custom Back Walnut Wood Seat Ottoman and my Custom Black Walnut Side Table. You can see in the close up images that the lines carry through from one part to thee next creating the look that this Custom Rocker is made from one piece of wood. The legs are sculpted to resemble a cleat that one sees on the dock to secure a boat with a rope. I hope that you have enjoyed viewing this Custom Black Walnut Wood Seat Rocking Chair.

Grizzman you do realize that adopting such a piece is a large responsibility. You must give it your undivided attention. You will inherit it’s need for nourishment to maintain it’s figure. You must pet it on a regular basis to make it feel as special as it is. Hint it likes it when you rub its arms. I am a good person and as loyal as it has been following me from show to show I would not want it to go to a home that it would not be loved. Would you By chance have a resume for me to review so that I can evaluate weather you will be a proper home for my loyal unwanted companion. You are correct that I am in a giving mood being Christmas and all and I would very much like to give my wallet a much deserved gift. Perhaps you could give me a suggestion of what I should give my wallet I have never been good at figuring out what to give. It makes me happy that you enjoyed viewing the chair Grizzman.

I totally dig this chair, bear. It is a said state of affairs we are in today in this country. It truly worries me. But we’re still the best in the world, and my blind faith tells me I’m going to find work again, people are going to be nicer to one another, and you’re going to sell your chair.

And look – before I found this place (LJ), people were all pretty rude, selfish, and the word ‘craftsmanship’ was lost years ago. Now I’ve found a really great bunch of guys who kid around and help each other, and many of them are fine craftsmen like you. So I guess my job and your chair are coming up next on the list.

Keep faith and thanks for the post – and the humor…I really needed it.
God Bless

Thanks for posting this beautiful chair. I’m still encouraged by the ones who still do appreciate a handmade piece of furniture, whoever they are. Since I haven’t made a similar piece, I appreciate seeing it on the post.

Kirk has the right idea about hoping for things to get better and what a blessing LJs is to sharing our work. This being Advent on the church calendar, I also take stock in remembering the source of that hope.

Take care,

Wonderful chair. If I could afford something like that I’d certainly buy it.
