Give a Heart for the Holidays

November 24, 2019

We recently started carving these Hearts for smaller items. It was a great way to use up some exotic and unusual woods left over from other projects. Some have slight wave patterns in them, but no two are alike. The front heart pops out from the backer heart, giving it a 3D effect. These would make great holiday gifts and we are offering them for $225.00 each with free shipping. We only have these few left, but we can create more out of some of the woods we have on hand like; Purple Heart, Juniper and more.

Heirloom Rocker

Black Limba and Wenge Rocker

Front view of the rocker

After our recent trip to Tanzania, we created this rocking chair for my dad, as a thank you from those of us that went on the trip. Scott and I decided to make it out of African woods, Black Limba and Wenge. This gorgeous rocker was a labor of love and and one of our all time favorites. The grain in the Black Limba was so beautiful and flowed so nicely, while the Wenge made the rocker grain really pop.

Here are a few photos taken during the construction process. A neighbor friend attended the process to see what all was entailed.

A perfect layout of the grain in the headrest. Look how the Wenge back spindles make the darker wood of the Black Limba pop.

Wenge was inlaid into the glue up of the runners.

Wenge was also used for the plugs
