Project Information

I have recently made several of this large style rocker, even some child sized ones. I made up my own plan, after seeing an article on manufactured ones in a "Wood" magazine some 20 yrs ago. I liked the straight oversized posts. As I built each chair, made some changes to improve the design. This one is a mix of left over wood, using Ash, Walnut and Jabota . Stained one coat of dark walnut, gloss lacquer. Others I have made from western red cedar and do sit on a porch. This one being fancy stays inside.

Great looking rocker. I like the turned legs and the deep curve on the back with you laminations.

That rocker looks great. The turned pieces are a real nice touch.
