With Brian Rae, for Laura Koch &Nandini Gopinadh
To the left is Nandini’s rocking chair to the right is Laura’s.
During the November 2008 election, I flew to Portland and helped him rapid fire build rocking chairs. Highlight – the Nest around 3 am, lowlight -trying to use a router jig to cut the rockers. The chairs are stickley replicates and horribly uncomfortable. I finally finished my rocking chair in 2012. Note, the awesome leather on Nandini’s chair that we had dyed and prepped in Morocco. One day I will finally get to getting the cushioned dialed in.
The knob on Nandini’s rocking chair – looks awesome. Here I am with Nandini, assembling the chair in my bedroom. This is when I decided that I really really need a shop.
