I recently saw some photos of a rocking chair designed and built by Jeff Miller of J. Miller Handcrafted Furniture.
Jeff has been building and designing furniture for clients for about 25 years in Chicago. Jeff is also the reason I fell in love with designing and building fine furniture. I took a number of classes and worked as a part time apprentice with him for about 7 years.
This walnut rocker is truly a masterpiece of his career in my mind. This rocker incorporates both solid and a significant number of bent walnut laminations across a number of planes. In fact, there are few identifiable straight lines, and the joinery is just as complex. The color and grain design is only going to get better with age, and from what I hear, it is crazy comfortable.
Great job Jeff on this incredible piece, you definitely get a 5 star rating and review from this fan.
