This sculpted rocking chair is built from 2’’ Canadian Black Walnut and Zebrawood accented with Ebony plugs. This is a large version ( 5’ 11’’ – 6’ 2’’ ).
This chair has 2 unique features that make it stand out even next to one of our other rocking chairs.
First the leg/headrest design borrows more form the Maloof design with legs extending like horns and with a more stylized bottom curve to the headrest but still using a coopered headrest to keep the grain lines matched to the seat and arms.
Second we used a beautiful piece of Zebra wood, sliced it into 2.29mm thick grain matched pieces and used it as the front lamination to add a very unique contrast to the Walnut.
- form fitting flexible back braces
- coopered headrest
- exposed Maloof joinery
- hand carved seat, arms, and joints
- Beautiful grain matched Zebra wood highlighted back braces
Thanks everyone for having a look
