This is a large English walnut rocking chair I made a while back. It is for sale. The wood came from near Leesburg, VA and as I was shaping the back leg top a bullet was revealed. It remains a part of the headrest.

Beautiful chair Hal. I really like how you got the repeating patterns in the back slats.

Hal, you have made an elegant and beautiful piece of furniture. It’s an instant heirloom. Congratulations.

The joinery is only part of the equation here, again with the sick wood. Outrageous stuff.

Thanks for sharing Hal.
