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
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.
- Grain matched Cocobolo form fitting flexible back braces front and back
- coopered headrest
