Re: Child's Desk Chair

Beautiful chair, with great intentions. Great craftsmanship, wish I could see it in person! Love the aesthetics of those sculpted folds in the legs; nice touch.

Re: Pauduk maloof inspired rocker

Thank you very much. This build took aprox. 120 hrs to complete. A bit of a long time for this chair I admit but it's not the most pleasent material to work with. I agree the aging of pauduk is very interesting. I like how it shows the characteristics of wood, the fact that its a finished product dosn't matter, that piece of furniture is continuiously changing throughout the remainder of its lifetime.
