Woodworker: Robert Galusha
This walnut and maple rocker, which won second place in the 2011 Texas Furniture Makers Show, is based on a dining chair that was a finalist in FWW’s maple build-off competition in 2008 (Readers Gallery, FWW #201). Galusha has built two other versions of the chair using different woods and slightly different designs, but this is the first rocker. Galusha used a long-grain lamination technique that he says adds strength that belies the chair’s fragile appearance. The rocker is 42 in. deep by 26 in. wide by 50 in. tall; the webbing is leather belting used on treadle sewing machines; the finish is lacquer and wax.
