Woodworker: Gary Clark
Clark’s chair won third place in the art furniture category and first place for excellence in finishing at the 2007 Design in Wood exhibition organized by the San Diego Fine Woodworkers Association. This chair is a blend of one of the most famous American chairs, the Maloof rocker, and one of the most classic of American cars, the 1959 Cadillac. The Maloof part of the chair is curly teak finished with an oil polyurethane. The car part is MDF finished with a two-stage automotive paint with a base coat and a clear coat.
