We are having a new website built (stay tuned!) so we’ve been taking lots of new photos…. Here are a few shots of the Hairpin rocking chair.
Here’s a new stool design I’ve been working on. 24″ tall and cut from an english walnut stump.In the words of Owen Wilson, “Not too bad considering I carved it from one piece of wood.” (Meet the Fockers). Enjoy your weekend, friends!
Bow tie inlays have become trendy and overplayed these days, but they do still have their place…and I think this chair back is one of those places.A couple of Hairpin rocking chairs waiting for the next coat of oil. Made from curly maple and claro walnut.
First coat of oil on this Hairpin Rocker.

Rocking chair prototype 4.0
Does anyone remember the scene from The Patriot where he throws his failed rocking chair onto a pile of chair rejects? There were a few moments like that today.
We finally finished Ollie’s new baby seat. I’m stoked on the upholstery my wife did.
Made from local walnut.
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.
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
