This chair will be shown at The Texas Furniture Maker’s Show at Kerrville, Texas. The chair has some different details added to the different transition areas and to the back of the back spindles. Basically I am accenting the joint areas. I had grown tired of just blending those areas together and this is what I came up with.

The craftsmanship is fantastic, but I can’t get over how amazing the figure of that wood is. Thanks for posting pictures.

When I look at a piece like this all I can do is admire the makers skills, & wonder how long it would take me to settle back & have a little rock / snooze.

That is a very nice rocking chair and I love the wood.

You usually don’t see this style done in a light wood. Nice change of pace. Beautiful piece!

WOW! That is beautiful!

Quick question – how much of it did you laminate/glue up?
