John's Sculpted Rocker

SCULPTED COMFORT
A project chair sculpted to fit the builder.

SHOP OWNER: John Richards
LOCATION: Hickory, NC

    This was my project chair from the Marc Adam's sculpted rocking chair class. It is solid mahogany and represents 190 hours of work. Itís custom designed for my body. The seat dimensions, arm height, spindle shape, and crest rail height are all based on me. I did all the shaping by hand using a series of rasps, carving chisels, and some occasional work with an angle grinder.

    The deep red finish is a result of dye, stain, grain filler, and toner top-coated with many coats of lacquer and a black wax. This was a definite cornerstone project in my woodworking development.

    A complete photo gallery is at My Website.
