This rocker was one of the final projects that Dan finished before he lost his life to Multiple Myeloma, a very difficult bone cancer.
Dan was completely self taught and strongly influenced by Thomas Moser and Sam Maloof. His work was shown in the Northern Woods Exhibition of Fine Woodworking 2003, and was also featured in Woodcraft Magazine’s “Show Off” section in 2006. His gallery level chairs were shown at Blue Sky Gallery in Minneapolis, until COVID caused them to close their doors.
His shop was a humble garage shop full of tools and intricate jigs that he used to construct these chair and other projects as well. His finish was his own creation as well.He was a long time fan of New Yankee Workshop!!
Long live the humble and gifted American woodworker!!
