Project Information

Just finished another rocker this time I used 8/4 lace wood, I purchased the wood at Burlington exotic wood and I'm very happy with the quality of the lumber.

The wood was great to work with which I did't know how it would be as this is my first experience with it, I will say lot's of fine dust!

These pictures are just before wiping of the second coat of 3 part finish

I used walnut for the plugs and walnut in the rockers as a highlight

Wow thank you all for the comments, I was also blown away by the grain and flakes I had to get these pics up on here to show you all I will finish it as a semi gloss I think maybe even satin so it will not be as glossy as these pictures, but who knows maybe i'll finish it with gloss, I kinda let the chair tell me how it wants to be finished.

The wood is 8/4 lacewood quatersawn from brazil, it was at my local wood place for $10bft. 8/4 walnut is actually more expensive here, is it not so other place, what your price for lacewood around you guys?

That has to be one of the finest "Maloofish" interpretations I've ever seen. I think it would impress the hell out of Sam.
