« Part 1: First progress report Part 2 of Wormy soft maple rocker ( Hal Taylor version ) series Part 3: Shaped front legs, attaching back legs »

Today I did some shaping on the rear joints using the kerf marks I made at the top and bottom of the seat I cut then sanded a nice profile. Also cut some angles to allow the head rest to flow into the legs. You can’t tell but I worked for a few hours on them legs.

Looking good.
Edit to add: I see you are using Hal’s video et al…I ordered mine Sunday. Hard maple is what I plan on using but only because it is what I have. I will be following your blog with heightened interest.

Love the wormy! Your skill at shaping things up is top shelf Bandsaw class 505 Professional course. This is going to be beautiful when complete.

camps764 – Thanks for the message, glad I got you inspired to build your self a chair, but I warn you now you’r traveling down a dark path in which you might build more then one!

Hal Taylors instruction is top notch and his chair is so comfortable it will know your socks off. I’m excited for you!
