There is always a need to make JIGs so you can make something in woodworking. To make this rocking chair there are many JIGs required. Here are a few I have made for this project. There will be others needed as I get into this build further.

A side slat sanding JIG. It was important to sand these side chair slats the same so that the tenons that would be cut later would be precisely the same size: 1/2 inches square.

Saw burns on cherry…

Orbit sander on seven slats at one time…

Sanded clean…

This same jig will be used to anchor a single slat so I can chamfer its four sharp edges…
