Rory Jaros Chair Maker - Gourmet sitting structures crafted from the peripheral resources of the Shawnee forest, built using techniques and skills threatened with extinction.

Handmade Ergonomic Rocking Chairs crafted from "recycled" walnut trees.

Rory Jaros's ergonomic rocking chairs are handmade and individually fitted.  Chairs are crafted of "recycled ...peripheral" resources of the Shawnee forest in Southern Illinois.  These chairs WILL serve everyday needs well. 

Jaros has researched, practiced and employs skills threatened with extinction.  This process uses simple tools.  Chair members are shaved from rivings.  Rivings are bundles of fiber ...the strongest unit of wood you can get from a tree. 

Each piece is distinctive and so well crafted that it may become a prized heirloom to be handed from one generation to the next. Since they are made to very high standards of quality, they will age beautifully and increase in value.

All work is signed and dated. Jaros' craft represents an equitable engagement between the land and his work, and reflects the heritage of five generations of craftsmanship.
