Banjo Rocking Chair

This is a rocking chair I made back in the '80s while I was a student at the Wendell Castle Workshop in Rochester, NY.. I designed it so that I could play my banjo while sitting on it so that is why it has no arms. I used the bent lamination technique to form all the curved parts. The back slats are cherry and the rockers are white oak. Originally it had a handmade rag rug seat. It has been reupholstered with leather. My son owns it now and it's held up very well!
