I have been wanting to make one of these rockers for a long time now. My wife says we don’t have room in the house, but a coworker who’s wife passed a couple of years ago wanted me to do a project for an memorial auction. He teaches with me at a community college and does the auction for a scholarship every year. I I hope it brings a good price for him.

Beautiful rocker it should bring a very nice sum. What wood combinations did you use?

That’s a darned good looking rocker. Some nice details with the contrasting wood.

The wood is poplar and something I had in the rack, I’m not sure what it is anymore.

Nice job Bob. Any guess as to how many hours are invested?

Good on you to donate that piece.

my wife said the same thing when i made mine,we made room,i wasn’t given that up.you did a beautiful job and it shows your craftsmanship.hopefully someone will appreciate what it takes to make one and it brings a good price.anything less than a couple thousand and they got a hell of a deal.good luck.

B’K’ and pottzy, love both the chairs… line them up and do a duet!

Just hope neither have to depend on them and just use them for pleasure…
