The greenwood rocker springs from the same woodworking tradition as the greenwood side chair, using wood movement to insure durability for generations. An important element in this tradition is wood selection. Red maple for the legs and slats and hickory for the rungs ensures the longest life for your handmade chair.
This rocker expresses a more rustic style, but the form and comfort are nearly identical to my classic rocker. As with all Brian’s ladderbacks, this custom seating is available with a seat of woven hickory bark or of shaker tape. A variety of finishes are available from milk paint to antique staining.
