« Part 1: Day number one - Do a bunch of work! Part 2 of Double lacewood rocking chair series Part 3: A beautiful day in the shop »

Today I started with the seat or should I say seats, drum sand, notch and rabbbit seat, again do some stuff to the rear legs glue second adder block, carve out seat, continue gluing headrest pieces, notch and round over front legs to fit joint, cope arms with table saw, glue front legs together, continue gluing up head rest, shape rear legs, get the rear legs to 90% finished which is leg/seat joint fitted, sanded, routed, sanded…...

Yup that was a good amount of work today, i’d like to have glued the rear legs to the seat but i’m tired went for an extra long walk with my dog.

Your work looks very nice. I’m sure it is going to make a beautiful rocker. How is the lacewood to work? I have wanted to try it sometime I love the look of it.

I love working the lacewood, I did notice I have some slightly different color a little more gray, but harder.

Ya I kinda hunker down and just go it, setting goals for each day especially important is to get your glues up done when they need to be done to keep things moving along.
