This is a small Quilted Maple and Walnut rocking chair sized to fit a 5' to 5'-5" individual. The back braces are bent laminated with a Quilted Maple front, a core of Ash (same material used to make archery bows) and the back face is Walnut. The braces not only provide lumbar support but they flex to cradle your back; you'll soon forget it's made from wood! Free freight to anywhere in the continental United States. Shipping elsewhere will cost a bit more.
