Apart from all of the extraordinary and well thought out design in the rest of the chair, Hal’s creation of a unique chair back is what completely separates his chairs from all the rest. Each slat is laminated from several pieces of wood, all carefully chosen for their grain structure, pattern, and color. The slats are glued together, and then clamped to a form. When the glue dries, what Hal has is a set of wooden springs. These ‘spring’ slats are held in place in the headrest and seat in holes that are just a bit bigger than the dowel end of the slat. So now when you sit and rock, not only do the slats ‘spring’ with your movement, the slats also have a bit of movement. This all combines to give you the most comfortable rocking chair experience ever.
About ten years ago I met Hal at a neighbor’s 4th of July party. We have kids around the same age, we are both around the same age, we’re both originally from the mid-west, and we are both drawn to a creative lifestyle. We hit it off, and later on I found out about his rocking chairs. He had had some photos done professionally, but I convinced him that I could do a better job. I thought Hal’s chairs were the most beautiful, and the most comfortable rocking chair I had ever rocked in. While the basic architecture has stayed the same, over the years Hal has refined certain elements. The biggest change I have seen is in the arm and the the arm support.
