« Part 4: Make the rocker template Part 5 of My First Rocker series Part 6: Small steps »

It’s taken 12 days but I finally have all the milling done. I plan to start the shaping of the parts this week. I http://lumberjocks.com/Betsy/blog_entries/new#have some work on the rockers to get them cleaned up. I sure like working with cherry.

So here’s my pile of rocker parts. Not very interesting – but sure was a lot of work. I can now very much appreciate the cost of a nice rocker.

Thanks for looking.

Betsy,

That pile of work represents a heck of a lot of work!!! Now the fun part begins!

I agree with you about working with cherry, recently built some shelves with it and it machines great. Finishing, well that’s another story!

Thanks guys.

You’re right about the fun starting Lew. I can’t wait to start seeing it take shape.

Zuki – thankfully there are a lot of trained eyes here on LJ’s that understands that pile of wood!
