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.. Bizzarri cuts part of chair that he is working on. Other than his bandsaw and lathe, all the tools uses are manually driven.
