New Mexico Magazine Artist Profile

/>

We are so proud to have New Mexico Magazine do another artist profile on us. The first profile was a few years ago on some bowls we made. However, the profile for their most recent April 2010 issue (available now) will showcase our Black Walnut with Curly Cherry Rocking chair. 

This rocker featured our contrasting wood joints (as seen above), where the seat and the legs meet. The black walnut came from an old growth tree (approximately 600 years old) along the Hondo River outside of Ruidoso NM and had the most  incredible figure we have ever seen in walnut. The walnut had very dark, almost black burling  along with blond sap wood. The contrast between the walnut and the curly cherry was very striking. The curly cherry which has beautiful tiger figuring was used on the back spindles, inlayed into the runners and wrapped around the joints.

We are very excited about this profile in New Mexico Magazine, since it is a highly saught after magazine across the US. The calls are already coming in on this profile. The woodworker and his wife that we made the rocker for were so excited and surprised to see their rocker in the magazine, that they called us right away.
