May 19, 2010. Pittsboro, North Carolina.. Elia Bizzarri makes rocking chairs the old fashioned way, by hand, using tools whose design date back hundreds of years. Working out of a shop in the woods outside Pittsboro, he takes 30 to 45 hours to make each hand crafted chair..One of Bizzarri's  finished chairs sits in a pile of wood shaving at the Woodwright's School in downtown Pittsboro, where he teaches.
