Maloof style rocking chair built utilizing sinker mahogany. Purchased the mahogany in December from Hearne Hardwoods in Oxford PA. The entire chair was built using one very large piece of 8/4 mahogany.
This is material from the bottom of Belizean rivers. Belize used to be a British colony. The British exported a lot of Mahogany from Belize throughout history and during the 19th century they used the rivers of Belize as their main source of transportation. Occasionally the denser Mahogany logs would sink! These logs for over 100 years had been lost and forgotten
