10 Continuous Arm Rocker
Donated by Thos. Moser
Altered from the original Continuous Arm Chair, the Continuous Arm Rocker is crafted in sustainably harvested North American hardwood, provides the perfect amount of roll while providing ample stability.
The shape of the continuous arm – oval at the top, round in the middle, and U-shaped where it meets the arms – requires intensive handwork. Each arm is trimmed, then filed by hand using a course file called a horse rasp, then a finer rasp, and then finished with a hand sander. Even the holes are drilled by eye.
The Continuous Arm Rocker also includes other refinements, such as a highlight (raised section) that runs around the back of the chair, where the spindles join the seat. The spindles extend all the way through the seat and are wedged top and bottom.
The stretchers are designed with a curved brace called a ship’s knee. The ship’s knee is created from 1/32”laminated ash that is bent to shape, and then set into a slot that is cut and shaped into the leg, so it is flush with the surface.
