The most recent issue of New Mexico Magazine (April 2010) has featured our Black Walnut with Curly Cherry Rocking chair. This rocker was made for a woodworker friend of ours, to give to his wife for Christmas. The Black walnut came from an approximate 600 year old tree that was dead standing along the Hondo River, just outside of Ruidoso NM. It was some of the most beautiful walnut we have ever seen, with dark, almost black burling and blond sap wood going through it. The figure was incredible. The curly cherry was used for the back spindles and inlayed into the runners and wrapped around the joints. The contrast between the two woods was gorgeous.
We are so proud to be featured again in this very recognized magazine.
