Tiger Maple Rocking Chair.

Inspired by Sam Maloof and Hal Taylor.

First time ever working with tiger maple.

Show piece for our next art show in Mt Gretna PA August 18th & 19th.

Unfortunately found a small defect in the headrest while re-sawing, plugged with a small 1/2” plug and hope that it will blend in more with age.

The tiger maple sets off the chair, or the chair sets off the tiger maple. Either way it’s going to be a great addition to your display.

Beautiful chair and great work. I love the tiger stripes across the back braces. All of your rockers are great.

That is one amazing chair

I know the wood and it must really

look good in the flesh, a picture could

never do this chair justice and the pictures

are excellent.
