Inspiration 2.0 - Walnut Zebrawood custom rocking chair #3

Walnut & Cocobolo

This sculpted rocking chair is built from 2'' Canadian Black Walnut and Cocobolo accented with Ebony plugs. This is a medium version ( 5' 2'' - 6' 2'' ) but with a headrest that has been raised by 1’’.

Body - Walnut

Back Braces - Cocobolo Walnut

Seat - Cocobolo highlight

Rockers - Cocobolo highlight

handmade custom cocobolo rocking chair

The leg/headrest design borrows more form the Maloof design with legs extending like horns and with a more stylized bottom curve to the headrest but still using a coopered headrest to keep the grain lines matched to the seat and arms.

I used the beautiful Cocobolo species, sliced into into 2mm thick grain matched pieces to be used as the front and back lamination to add a very unique contrast to the Walnut.

The seat has also been highlighted with Cocobolo surrounded by Canadian Black Walnut
