This is certainly my biggest woodworking accomplishment yet beside my continuing home reno. Not sure the house always counts a woodworking though. This is constructed completely from the 2X Cull lumber scrap bin from the BORG. So probably some kind of SPF. Its a Cole Rocking Chair from Mr. Cole’s website. Easy enough to Google. After a lot of lamination, a heck of a lot of time with a grinder, a heck of a lot more time with a sander, and a quick coat of boiled linseed oil. Its finally done. For the full build which I have documented pretty much every step of the way, the link is below.

So glad and proud its done.

Good on you for sticking with it. Looks plump. So does it sit well, looks like it would.

I really enjoyed going through the build post, thanks for sharing.

It’s actually very nice to sit in. There is great back support and very nice rock to it. It’s very much on the heavy side and will be a very nice addition to my house.

Thanks everyone.

That’s a great build Travis and a really nice chair to add to your house. I’m sure your Oak one will be nice but, I’d hardly call that one a prototype. It would have a permanent spot in my house! :-)

Dude, it’s a heck of a project. It’s really an amazing chair and can’t wait to enjoy it still more once the oil dries. Thanks for the encouragement.
