Following a Mike Pekovich plan from Fine Woodworking, I finally completed the craftsman rocker. Attached is a photo pre finish and one finished. I followed Jeff Jewitt’s finishing technique using a reddish brown trans tint dye, arm r seal seal a cell, and arm r seal poly. Seat I had made professionally.

I say I finally finished as this started in spring 2019. I got a little stuck working on the angled tenons to create the splay.

The rocker looks great. It looks like you got the angles right. How does it rock?

It rocks great on a hardwood and tile, not as great on the carpet. It was for my wife and she enjoys it. Might try a morris chair for myself with a little more room. Thanks

Have your say...
