Just wait until you see the rocker assembly. This is no ordinary rocker. The sides are shaped to look like waves of water. After getting these plans, I’ve been thinking of ways I could improve the rockers on some of my other rocking toys to make them more interesting. I’ve been working at night again lately. It’s too hot in my shop in the daytime. So, if the good Lord’s willing and the creeks don’t rise, I hope to finish the project completely tonight.
