Special Edition Rocking Chairs

From time to time, we find some extraordinary wood and make a rocker from it.  For example, we have built special edition rockers from curly maple, figured cherry, figured walnut, flame birch, heart pecan, old growth mahogany, and burly mesquite.  We photograph these chairs and feature them on this page of the site.

The Weeks Rocker in Texas Pecan

The pecan is the State Tree of Texas.  The wood in this chair is figured and marked with character — recording the droughts, storms, insects, white hot summers, and blue northers of its homeland.

The Weeks Rocker in Curly Cherry

Like some maple trees, some very few cherry trees produce curly wood.  In these rare trees, for unknown reasons, the grain running up the trunk is not more or less straight as is normal, but is wavy, even wiggly. The grain therefore runs in and out of the surfaces, producing patterned iridescence and "curl."

There is also a splash of contrasting sapwood in the crest of this distinctive and beautiful individual.
