Hello there friends lj.
I was supposed to be carving this winter,,, when this project came up, I just could not resist This is a rocker completely made out of black walnut, a gift for my son and daughter in law for their new home.
I had some hard time, must be getting old, and some good time , walnut makes you look good. And with the shut down , I was busy most of the fall and begining of winter all by myself, This is my second attempt with the help of Scott Morrison’s instruction, thanks to you Scott.

I am taking this moment to send all my fellow woodworkers , my best wishes for the new year, play safe , be happy ,and if you have to wear a mask, might as well be a dust mask,

Thanks for looking, comments always welcome. Keep on making saw dust.

A sure fire smile to the face post. Congrats on such a fine make, and hopes it always is comfortable to sit, no matter how old you become.
