I have always liked Sam’s style. Thank you Sam for your legacy.

This chair is made of walnut, ebony, and maple.

I had the privilege to build this rocker for a couple expecting their first child.

A thing of beauty and a wonderful rendtion of a master work.

Still on my list of things to attempt sometime in the next year or two, this has slowly been creeping towards the top of the list. Just not sure which plans/templates I’m going to go with for my first attempt.

Well done!

The love that went into it, the love that will take place on it, the love that will pass it on to someone else some day—furniture ain’t just furniture.
