Ladderback Rocker Cafe' Doors

--- $1,975 ---

This is an Apalacian "6-slat" ladder back chair 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 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.
