This sculpted rocking chair is built from 2'' Canadian Black Walnut and Zebrawood accented with Ebony plugs. This is a medium version ( 5' 5'' - 5' 11'' ) but with a headrest that has been extended by 1''.
First 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.
Second we used a beautiful piece of Zebra wood, sliced it into 2.29mm thick grain matched pieces and use them as the front and back lamination to add a very unique contrast to the Walnut.
- Grain matched Zebrawood form fitting flexible back braces front and back
