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.

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.
