Is there a warning for consumers? Yes: Don’t be stupid! This is a heavy rocking chair. Be careful when kids or pets are around. Don’t let kids play on it. If it rocks over bare toes or long tails, that won’t be any fun at all.
How much does it weigh? Approximately 60 pounds. A bit of a bitch to ship, but if you can’t pick it up, we’ll find a way. May cost you a few bucks, but it’s worth it.
How much does it cost? $5,000. $2,500 deposit to start the project. Shipping and delivery will depend on method and location.
What is it made of? Stainless steel tubes. Hand fitted and welded. See the Birthplace page.
How do you maintain it? I’ve cleaned it about twice with a hose and steel wool pad. That’s since about 2001. This is STAINLESS steel. Shiny under the accumulated crud from being outside through all seasons for many years. It thrives on neglect.
Isn’t it cold in Winter and hot in Summer? No. Bundle up and build a fire. Amazingly cool in Summer. That may have something to do with the reflective properties of the material.
How long does it take to make? Depends on how busy we are. Allow a couple of months.
