During the assembly process all spindle rocking chairs are glued and screwed and mission rocking chairs incorporate tenon and mortised construction for increased strength and durability. After assembly each rocking chair is hand sanded then it receives a coat of stain, which is, hand sprayed to assure complete coverage. The stain is then hand rubbed to remove excess, hand rubbing also results in an even and consistent color while enhancing the beauty of each rocking chair's unique grain. After a drying period each rocking chair is individually given a coat of sealer and hand sanded prior to the final finish. This process reduces any raised grain that may have resulted from the sealing process. Finally, a finish coat is applied providing an even luster that will provide years of durable beauty to every rocking chair.
Just like our custom made furniture we can also do reproductions or we can replicate an antique rocking chair to accent other fine furniture in your home. If your needs are for kitchen chairs, dinning room chairs, desk chairs, bar chairs or restaurant chairs our process will provide the durability and strength for many years of service. We have a wide range of fabric or leather for you to select from or send us your own fabric and we will incorporate it into your custom rocking chair.
We are committed to the highest quality for a reasonable price. Rocking Chairs are all made from hardwoods such as Oak, Maple, Cherry, Hickory or 1/4-Sawn Oak. All hardwoods have variations in their color and grain. Our custom rocking chairs are built and finished to bring out the natural beauty and character of each piece of wood. These wood characteristics give each chair its unique and individual charm. Although the finishing processes are identical, no two pieces will be exactly the same. The combination of beautiful hardwoods and Amish hand craftsmen will allow you to appreciate the old world quality of our custom made chairs.
