To Build a Rocking Chair
Some would say that this is the most difficult piece of furniture to make. I would agree. I did not finish my chair on-time and labored months after it was supposed to be finished. It was a valuable lesson in how thoughtful design at the beginning will impact a product. Now it rests in my apartment; my friends sit and rock in the chair I built and I love to watch their face when they learn that I made it.
Here is the process, from sketches to early models to the physical craft and finally the finished product. Yet it is never that linear and these multiple pages from my sketchbooks show the evolving thoughts and problem solving over the months of iteration and construction.
