This rustic wood chair is based on the classic Shaker rocking chair but made from small pine trees. The pine trees were cleared from a ranch in Davie, FL. I gathered the trunks then shaved off the bark. The rungs were shaped with a drawknife. The chair is put together with mortise and tenon joinery with pva wood glue. The seat is woven with cotton wrap. The rustic chair is then finished with several coats of a mix of satin oil-based polyurethane and mineral spirits.
