Very nice rocker. I’ve always wanted to make one but my mind hasn’t designed it yet. Looks like you’ve got something good going here that will last for years. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. The joinery looks fantastic, it just seems to flow from one section to another, good job! I especially like how you tapered down the runners towards the end and angled them towards each other, nice touch.

Have your say...
