Walnut w/purple heart rocking chair-Here is some pictures of a recent rocking chair.Wood is Black Walnut with Purple heart accents.I did something different with this one and wrapped the leg/seat joint with the purple heart also. The purple heart is also inlayed into the runners.

Great looking chair. Those accents are great also. I have one of those on my list to make.

How long did it take you?

Another beauty, Scott! This one looks like it would be very comfortable with that built-in lumbar support.

Beautiful chair, Scott.

What do you charge for those? I couldn’t find any prices on your website.

This chair is $4200 most of my rockers are between $3000-$6000 depending mainly on wood.Some say I am to low on the price but right now I am comfortable getting that much from one

I built a box out of walnut and purpleheart, I like the contrast myself and I think they compliment eachother.
The tie ins give it a kind of pinstripe look, really racy to go with the sleekness of the chair. Perfect for an afternoon of NASCAR. Maybe you ought to name it the racing rocker! Just a thought anyway… great work any way you look it!
