My newest son, Oliver, was born on the 17th, so I took the week off. After a couple of days I got stir crazy and found myself mocking up this baby seat on our back patio. Once the project was started I couldn’t stop. Here’s a few photos of Ollie’s new rocking chair frame. I will post an update when we get the leather seat made.
Made from local Claro Walnut.
This wine rack is part of a kitchen project that has taken over my shop. It will be backlit with LED lighting.
I’ve been playing with this chair prototype for a year and a half now and finally starting to get somewhere. I just remade the seat using some figured walnut. The legs are steel with exposed welds.back to benridderingdesign.com

I am putting the finishing touches on this custom upholstered Half Moon bench. It ships out the end of this week to a designer in New York. When I told her we could customize the upholstery she had this Pierre Frey linen sent from Paris–this is by far the most colorful Half Moon bench I have done yet. Below are a couple of shots of the reclaimed oak bench base in process.
Glue up with a little help from Bessey.
Festool Domino XL used to spline the joint.
