I really enjoyed seeing you build this delightful project, William. It came out so nice! I love the waves on the rocker, too. They really look cool. I think that any child will love to play on this – it will send their imaginations racing!
The stain colors are just beautiful too. They are bright and vibrant and I agree with you liking that better than paint. I think it should look beautiful for a long, long time.
This was a real treat to see how you put this together step by step. Thank you so much for taking the time to show us and tell us the story. Wonderful blog and project!

Delightful. Nothing quite like creating something that you know will be appreciated. Nice work William.

I like that little boat rocker. Kids love stuff like that boat. They can get into a boat like that and sail around the whole world inside their own minds. The kids have great imaginations, you know? Great project, William; that will make some child very happy.

I just discovered this blog today.
This is a cute project that I’m sure a kid will enjoy, & maybe keep for his own children someday.

Have you thought of using the router to make your pieces? You rough them out on the bandsaw quickly, then tack a hardboard template on and use a flush cutting trim bit in the router to make the final cut. Perfectly square and spot on accuracy every time. If you make many of these, the templates will be a boon, believe me.

I tried before making templates and routing out pieces Tiny. It took the fun out of everything to me. If people want to buy them, they can just wait and give me time to build them the way I always do.
