« Part 7: Making a rocker, rock! Part 8 of Double lacewood rocking chair series Part 9: One coat of finish, all done for now. »

So everything is attached, the rocker to leg joints are ready to be final shaped and sanded and the rest of the chair is ready to get sanded to 500 then burnished before the finish.

The leg joints have 4’’ screws through the rocker into the leg, plugged with 1/2’’ plugs

The last picture is myself with a good friend of mine. I’m in the camo shirt

Looks beautiful.
If this is the first double, would you do anything different next time?

These chairs look fantastic. I hope you don’t own any long tailed cats!

Very nice Paul, the lacewood was a nice choice. I’ve been wanting to try to make a rocker in quatersawn sycamore, but can’t find any 8/4 anywhere.

Have your say...
