This guy has access to a lot of self powered tools. This is a way cool and pretty fast video (5:29 minutes) Great video work too. Ingenious actually.

I thought one of the coolest things was how he hand-hewed the rockers, then resawed it in half to produce two. What was your favorite part?!

That’s awesome! I think it’s amazing what people can do utilizing absolutely no electrons and all body power to make these amazing pieces. That’s some skill right there

Nice, I missed this one. He has other interesting videos too including a couple on the treadle lathe he built and the tools he used in making the rocking chair.

What a guy! The hand tool work, the ax throwing, the video tricks. Just awesome!

Spent the last hour sitting back, sipping on coffee, and watching his videos… Very cool! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the heads up. It was as inspiring as it was entertaining. I thought it was going to be a Flintstone rocking chair. You know as in Bedrock, Fred and Wilma. I would have liked that but I loved what it ended up being. Again thanks for the heads up on this.
