Two years ago I made the Kalifornia Lounger chair in 5 days (not sensible at all) because I decided at the last minuet to make a new chair to debut at the exhibition I was in up in San Jose, CA. I had wanted all along for the chair to be a rocker but I was a little intimidated by getting the correct arc and weight balance within the amount of time I had. Little did I know how difficult it was going to be to figure out the back support angles, the arm rest angles, and, well everything. It’s a tough chair to build, but it turned out well. Now I have an opportunity to put the chair in my showroomDeSousa Hughes and I decided that it needed to be a rocker and be born all over again. ReBirth. It was much easier than planned I have to admit. Maybe I got lucky , but it balances out very well and rocks beautifully. Now I will keep shaping the rockers into the transition from the original feet and then it goes to the paint shop to be lacquered a kick ass RED. The first picture is what this chair used to be and what it is now becoming. I am filming the whole process so……stay tuned.
