This chair was built using 2’’ Canadian Black Walnut with Lacewood plugs, it is based off the design of Hal Taylor this is a medium ( 5’6 – 5’-11 ) with a beautiful sap line offering contrast down the center on the seat and headrest.

These chairs are a labor of love to build at the end sitting in it you think does it get any better, then glance over at the pile of 8/4 walnut notice some interesting grain, and start jointing your way to the next chair I guess it does.

We are currently building this same chair but with inverted head rest lines and rear legs the extend past the head rest, should be close to finish by the end of next week. We just got a website up about 1 week ago, and are keeping a small blog on there showing our daily activities with a lot of pictures so come for a visit and if you happen to be in southern Ontario, Canada come on by for a seat.

We are keeping this chair to show clients how spending a little extra time choosing the layout of the lumber can show how beautiful nature is and make one really unique chair that will last longer then me.

The chair features:

Coopered Headrest
Form fitting flexible back braces
Hand sculpted everything
Hand rubbed oil finish
Bent lamination – rockers and back braces

Beautiful example of Maloof’s work. You really do have a way of making it look easy and we all know it isn’t. Kudos.

Another fantastic piece! The grain detail in the back really adds to the piece.
