Having sat in these chairs I had to try to build one…with a lot of help from a friend who is building his 7th Hal Taylor Rocking Chair. It is the most comfortable chair I believe I have ever sat in and I wanted to try to make one. Mine is the large size, since I am 6’5”. The basic chair is Walnut. There is a 90mm strip of Hard Maple in the rockers and two 70mm strips of Ash in the back slats so they will flex. I have about 85 hours in the project thus far and I figure I’m about half way…but this is my first project of this type. I hope to display the finished product several weeks from now.
