« Part 3: A beautiful day in the shop Part 4 of Double lacewood rocking chair series Part 5: No internet make Paul do more work »

Started the day off enjoying a good storm watchin with my cup of coffee, but back to the chair…...

First I glued the stacks to the rocker to allow for the leg to rocker transition

I now have taken the clamps off of the front legs and seem to have glued up nicely

I figured out how the 2 head rest pieces would be glued together and glued them together…

Then drum sanded the edges of the back braces, cut the bottoms to fit the routered back brace holes in the seat, they all fit great but now I have to wait till the headrest is ready so here’s to a little R&R

Thanks all for coming out to have a look.

Some one asked how many hours I have into it I had 24 hours into it before today, worked about 4 hours today so as of right now I have about 28 hours into this chair.

I really enjoy your detailed photos of the build. You make it look easy (But I know it isn’t). I always wonder if the seat strength will be adequate with no particular support from the laminated back braces. I hope we’ll soon learn if you intend to use some other strengthening technique. Looks like it’s going to be a beauty.

Before I even glued the front legs on I had a couple friends sit on the chair, not the smallest guys either and it seemed to not have any issues, the seat is dressed to 2’’ and the carving really does not take away much strength in my opinion
