« Part 62: Do your tools limit your designs? Part 63 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 64: Sculpted Rocking Chair - Front Legs and Initial Leg Shaping »

Well, after a bit of a hiatus, I’m back working at the Sculpted Rocking Chair. In my most recent post I continued with processing of the rear legs. This involved making a 20-degree jig for use at the band saw, shaping the areas at the seat joints and also drilling for the headrest. Take a look and let me know your thoughts.

Thanks for reading!

Mark it is good to see you back working on your rocking chair. I have been enjoying following your progress as you build this chair. It seems to be a more complicated way to build a chair than the way I have been doing it. A lot more jigs and laminated parts. But, I also know a lot of people have been successful building chairs with HAL Taylor’s plans.
I am looking forward to seeing more installments on your chair as you progress.

Thanks for the comment. There are definitely a few jigs to build. Back slats and rockers are laminated but, there are several areas where stock is face glued to add thickness to an area (for example the seat joint area of the rear legs).
