This incredible rocker was made from Oregon Black walnut and had a lot of figure. The second of our Shangrila II rockers, it is full of curves, making it an artistic focal point. All the curves involve a lot of labor intensive carving and hand shaping. But it is well worth it. The back supports are bentwood laminations that flex as you move. This back has been very popular, due to the extreme comfort and we will continue them in our rockers. We perfected them even more, so they have a better flex and won’t start squeaking over time with the movement or break. The process of lining them up and getting the right angle is more involved, but ensures a better feel to the back. The grain on this rocker was incredible. Scott was sure to book match the lumbar supports, making them very striking and the figure throughout this rocker was stunning. Wish we would have been able to get professional pictures of this one. Hopefully next time. We’re in the process of making more as we speak.
