« Part 11: Update Part 12 of Morris style glider series Part 13: Seat »

OK, this is a little embarrassing… It has been nearly 4.5 years since my first post on this chair. I was originally going to make this chair prior to my daughter’s birth in March of 2015 for rocking and feeding her. She is turning 4 in just a couple of months and I am only halfway done. Luckily I get a second chance! My second daughter is due at the end of April. It’s go time.

I have moved since my last post and now live in Charlotte, NC. This allows for more comfortable working in the garage shop in the winter months. So, I have set up my shop sufficiently in the past year, made some smaller projects to get some skills developed and have begun once again to tackle this beast.

Working the past couple of weekends figuring out where I left off and sorting through the (luckily well labeled) parts of the chair. I managed to finish the left side of the chair assembly and finally glued up the two armrest sub-assemblies into one larger monster (didn’t appreciate the size of this until this was done) with the front and back “rails”.

The seat and back will hopefully seem a bit of a breeze compared to the rest without the through tenons aplenty on the armrest assemblies!
