This Ladderback  rocker orginated from the 4 slat ladder back "Captain's" Chair meant to be used at the ends of a formal dining table.  The side chairs would be armless 3 slat varieties.

The arms are contoured to nestle the arm and the front legs are captured in the arms with a "thru" tenon wedged with Ebony.

All the slats are pinned with diamond shaped Ebony pegs.

I decided to convert this design to a rocker for my wife to sit next to me in the more elegant 6 slat rocker shown elsewhere.

I accept consignments for doing either the chair or the rocker.  The chair is slightly less expensive to make.

This is an apalacian 4 slat ladder back rocker crafted from "green" (non-kiln dried) wood.

This particular chair is crafted from "Red Oak" with "Hickory Bark" for the seat and "Ebony" for the slat "pegs".

The curved portion of the chair has been steam bent to get the gracefull curve of the back.

The slats were also steam bent, then inserted into slots of the back legs. They were then pinned for structural integrity.

The seat is hand woven in a "herring bone" pattern out of hickory bark from Kentucky.

The rockers are not steam bent but are fashioned out of several thinner slices of wood and glued in a wood shaping form. 

Other species that are noted for steam forming qualities are Walnut and Maple and are priced separately 

Price does not include shipping and handling charges.
