This is an Apalacian 6 slat ladder
back rocker crafted from "green" (non kiln-dried) wood.
The chair on the left is crafted from "Cherry" with "Hickory
Bark" for the seat and "Ebony" for the slat "pegs".
The chair on the right is crafted from "CottonWood"
with a woven seat. No back slat pegs were inserted.
The curved portion of the chairs were steam bent to get the
gracefull curve of their 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
