Gamble House Rocking Chair

This project has been on my wishlist for many years and I’m excited to bring it to you! This is an iconic rocking chair packed full of great Greene & Greene details, from its recessed carvings to its silver inlay and cloud lift patterns.

For nine months I worked in SketchUp and creating prototypes in preparation for this build. The rocker we will build will vary slightly from the original, which was designed for a person standing around 5 feet tall. Ours will feature an increased seat height and slightly taller back with laminated rockers.
