This chair is a small version of the sculpted rocking chair I make it was built using Walnut and Lacewood.
The seat is 2’’ thick but made with 1.5’’ of lacewood then laminated with book matched pieces of 1/4’’ walnut, when the seat is sculpted the lacewood is revealed. Also the lacewood contrast really shows off the Maloof style seat joints, which had to be extra good but of course I made them extra extra good (-:
The bent lamination back braces are 4 layers, 3 lacewood and one walnut to add some contrast.
Also the rockers themselves are 8 layers of walnut then the top lamb is lacewood and the transitions from the rocker to the leg is also lacewood.
I must say I love how this turned out, I really want to find some nice 2’’ birds eye / curly maple and combine it with walnut in the same way.
Thanks for having a look
