Mahogany chair #9. I actually started this chair last summer but some customer orders had to interrupt it.

Jay, I have found that Walnut seems to be the most ordered wood, but Mahogany will sell the quickest when side by side in the gallery.

Nice design and the Mahogany is a pleasant change from the Walnut that seems so common…Not that I don’t like Walnut ! : ) As a Professional , what finish do you like to use the most on your projects ?

Dusty, I use Deft Danish Oil for 95% of my pieces. Every now and then I do a piece that needs polyurethane as well.

I never tire of seeing these projects. I even have some mahogany (2”x8”x14’). How much lumber does it take to make one of these?

Steve, it takes about 40-50 bd ft of 8/4 lumber. I like to buy a minimum of 50 bd ft per chair but I cherry-pick the wood features I want. So I might cut a 10’ board in 3 or 4 places to take the seat from one section, the arms from another, etc. I concentrate most of my efforts on picking the seat, arms and headrest then make everything else from what’s left.

Dusty, the last time I ordered it I had to get it from a basket supply place, fortunately my wife weaves a lot of baskets so we happened to have a catalog around at the time.

I got it from here, search on the page for Deft.

Thank you Rich – I have just over 50 bd ft in 3 pieces. The two 14 ft ones are book matched with a good deal of character. I bought them with no idea what they would become. A rocking chair such as this keeps coming up in my mind – just need to finish the current project (and about 3 more).
