In reverse order, these images show a new rocking chair evolving from a model built out of 2” thick extruded foam to a solid Hard Maple prototype.

Hard Maple, or Sugar Maple, is  sometimes referred to as Rock Maple- because it really is that durable.

The design is decidedly scaled up from your grandmother’s delicate rocker. With a sculpted seat, she rocks like a dream.
