Thank You Hal Taylor. Wish this was my design but it wasn’t. Started this project about two years ago. Got put on hold due to moving in to New Shop 2000 sq. ft. Building. Was half way done at that point. Somehow during the move the ebook would not open to the files need to finish to his design. So contacted Hal and he sent me a new ebook. So this is the final product. Thank you again Hal. Walnut. Cherry. Curly maple. Oil finish. Very fun to build. But a lot of sanding. I have never been able to follow any designed project directions but Hal was very good.
Sorry pic are bad but my camera does work with new laptop,so have to use phone camera. Doesn’t do my projects justice.

I love the sculpted look of the chair. It may not be “your design”, but it is certainly well crafted by you.

“Exquisite workmanship” would be an understatement. Beautifully crafted. Hal Taylor’s design is superb, but you made it happen guy. Well done!

Using contrasting woods on the laminate rockers is a bold move because they’ll reveal any discrepancies in the shaping far more than a solid-colour rocker.

Well done. Beautiful piece.

Wow that is great, I like the seat contrast with the legs. I think your multi color lams in the rockers is very challenging. In shaping I think they could really show off blemishes in the curves, yours are great. I just finished my third Hal Taylor Rocker.
