During one of my shop classes, this is me working on a couple of rockers then two friends seated in the two completed class rockers.

I have posted new information for the FREE WEB CLASS as of 29 Feb. so have a look and start having fun making your own custom rocking chair. You can view this info at and click the required tab to view the information.

Bill, Thanks for sharing your outstanding skills with those who can only hope to, maybe, get close some day in the distant future.

Come on, it is easy to make a custom rocker if we go one step at a time. Each step is just easy woodworking. Once all the steps are finished you have a custom rocker. Give it a try, nothing to lose. Once the rocker is in your home you will be surprised how much pleasure will come your way with your admiring friend’s and visitors comments. You may even make some extra bucks for your continued woodworking hobby.

The wood cost is relatively inexpensive if you use a common walnut for example. Say thirty five board feet at four dollars per. You could not buy any household furniture chair or so little.

I love to help woodworkers. Keep letting me know someone is looking at the info and I will keep posting on my web site.

The problem with posting this way is I never know if someone is taking interest whereas in my personal shop classes I get immediate feedback. So if I get some response for the daily post it stimulates me onward. Are you out there? If so let me know and I will keep posting also let me know at what speed I should post.
