The chair is called the “Russell Rocker” and it is made of African Mahogany with a stampe saddle leather and a elk hide headrest. The rocker is a testament to the style and detail that Steve puts into each piece he designs and handcrafts.
Steve was involved in the sport of gymnastics for over 40 years until he decided to sell his gym to make chairs full time. He believes the things he learned from gymnastics helped him in his woodworking. “Working hard every day in the gym and paying attention to detail is what makes a great gymnast, and the same can be said for woodworking. In his shop, Steve works diligently on every detail of every piece, which is especially important as he’s self taught and constantly learning from his friends and peers.
