Inventory Rocking Chairs For Sale
I usually have a couple of chairs available for immediate sale. Even though 90% of my creations are custom, made to order chairs, I still display in galleries and occasionally do fine craft and fine art shows. To do these three things I need samples of my work. Also, during slow periods I will often try new designs or variations on existing themes.
As of today I have eight chairs that are available for immediate sale. I have put their name, size, wood specie and price above each. Before ordering please call to discuss sizing and how to measure yourself in case one of them catches your fancy or you're looking for a gift for someone. In addition to the chairs I currently have available, I also have two music stands, a large, live edge hall table (6'L x 2'W x 33"T) made out of stunning big leaf maple and two matching end tables also made from live edge big leaf maple. They are (30"L x 20" W x 22"T). All three tables are supported by 1/4" black powder coated steel stands.
"The Office", Medium/Large, Black Walnut $6,000
"The Office", (as in, "I'll be in The Office) is made from the balance of a really nice black walnut tree that was cut in Funk, OH and then milled and dried in PA. This chair is sized to nicely fit people from about 5'4" - 5'11". I used small amounts of the sap wood to get some color variations that you might note in the middle of the seat, the seat edges, and at the bottoms of the rear legs where they transition into the rockers.
"Christopher", Large, Curly Maple, $5,500
I created Christopher out of an unusually white curly maple that I found on a wood buying trip up into Pennsylvania. He will no doubt get a little more golden as time goes on but is a really honest rocking chair primarily fitting people 5'10" to 6'2".
Abby, Child Size, Curly Maple, $3,800
The first child's chair I've ever done it is my guess that Abby would fit a 6-7 year old perfectly although a younger person could grow into this chair nicely. She is 35" tall and 22" wide. The seat is just 10" above the ground. This chair is made with all the same care and consideration as one of my larger adult chairs. The major differences are that the rockers are slightly flatter (slower more stable ride), there are virtually no sharp edges or points, and while the back braces will still flex they are secured in a manner that will prevent them from being twisted out of place by "overactive" young hands.
"Alisha", Medium, Indian Rosewood and Wenge, $6,300
This is my most recent chair. What makes this very unique is the lovely Indian Rosewood that I used to build it. This wood grew right here in FL and the wood from this big beautiful tree was milled and dried by Advantage Lumber right here in Sarasota. I used black Wenge as an accent in the back braces and where the legs transition into the rockers. Ideal for the 5'4"-5'11" height group.
"No Name Yet", Large/Tall, Cherry & Amboyna Burl, $6,400
I created this chair several months ago and it is made from a nice figured PA Cherry and Amboyna Burl from Laos. Amboyna is the most expensive wood on earth and besides the solid headrest trim, the rocker tops are also veneered with Amboyna. This chair is sized ideally for a taller person in the 5'10" - 6'3" range.
"Mini", Small, Figured Cherry and Ash $5,500
I completed this chair in March of 2016. Mini is made from Pennsylvania cherry with Ash accents in the headrest, rockers and back braces.
Valentina, Small, Virginia Black Walnut, Ash and Curly Maple $5,800
A sweet chair for a smaller person. I made this chair primarily from a really nice Virginia Black Walnut and added some Ash and Maple accents to the back braces, rockers and transition into the legs. This chair would be ideal for someone in the 5'-5'8" height range.
Courtland, Medium, Amboyna Burl & Satine, $32,000
Amboyna Burl is probably the most expensive wood on earth and often sells for over $300/board foot or $70/pound for the premium grades like what Courtland is made from. I originally bought a 950 Ib burl to make two matching chairs for a client. Unfortunately most burls have minimal strength and flexure on their own so I added Satine (Bloodwood) in critical load bearing areas like the rockers and the back braces. This is a very unique piece for a client who wants something very special.
