This sculpted rocking chair is built from 2’’ Canadian Black Walnut and Ebony also accented with Ebony plugs. This is a large version ( 5’ 11’’ – 6’2’’ ).
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.
We used a beautiful piece of jet black Ebony, 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.
- Grain matched Ebony form fitting flexible back braces
- coopered headrest
- exposed Maloof joinery
- hand carved seat, arms, and joints
- Truly a unique and beautiful custom rocking chair that is about as comfortable as they come
We are finally happy with our picture taking abilities, I finally figured out a few settings on my camera to achieve the results we wanted. I do want to get a gray background sometime soon. I have my work cut out for me now to re-take pics of chairs we still have here, but i’ll have to settle with the pics of the sold chairs and tables.

We made a time lapse video of applying the finish to this chair which can be viewed on this site
