Curly walnut and cherry rocking chairs

Curly walnut and cherry rocking chairs

Maker: Dallas Gara

Location: Calgary, Alberta

The curly walnut rocker has ziricote highlights and back braces. I woodwork in my spare time just for fun. I am inspired by Hal Taylor and Sam Maloof, and I have been building rockers for a little over five years. This is a dramatically different design from what I usually build seeking a lower and more laid back feel. I made the curly cherry rocker with quilted maple back braces late in 2020.
