These chairs have become an obsession. Short story I want it to appear to move. Like most start from scratch projects it has been a one step forward, two step back process. The wood I used is Ohia deadfall from near our home.

I think you just gave Maloof a run for the money. So many eye-catching and harmonious details… The plugs and contrasting woods at the joints, the sculpted splats (front and rear), the way the back stiles join the rockers. And the arms and the seat bucket just look…comfortable. Outstanding design, craftsmanship and finish. This is a favorite.

The title doesn’t do justice to this magnificent piece. If this is just “another chair”, then Pavarotti was just “another singer.” This is truely a work of art. You should be very proud of this work. If you have some “other” chairs, well, let’s see them!

Luckily, it isn’t against the law to have an obsession like yours…nor is there a Chairmaker’s Anonymous. You’re home free. Great looking chair.

Love the chair. I especially like the way you have oriented the grain, such as bookmatching the grain on the arms to give it that “flow”.
