Wishbone Rocker


Wooden Rocking Chair

Cherry, Ash
36″H, 22″W, 37″D

The wishbone shape of the rocker and the seat side support, which are joined at the tail of the chair, gives the structure great strength. The seat slats are made of ash, a very flexible wood, which are sprung into place using the tail of the wishbone to hold them.

Likewise, the back slats continue from the top of the back to below the seat, where they are sprung into place behind a dowel under the seat. This natural springiness gives the chair surprising comfort.
