Walnut & Curly Maple

Walnut & Curly Maple

This sculpted rocking chair is built from 2'' Canadian Black Walnut and Curly Maple accented with Ebony plugs. This is a medium version ( 5' 2'' - 6' 2'' )

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 Big Leaf Curly Maple species, sliced into into 2mm thick grain matched pieces to be used as the front and back laminations of the flexible back braces, to add a very unique contrast to the Walnut.

The seat has also been highlighted with Big Leaf Curly Maple surrounded by Canadian Black Walnut
