My mom went with me when I bought the wood for my first rocker and she realized I bought enough wood to make two rockers. She put her order in for one right then. Today is her birthday and mother’s day so I got started on the rocker. I don’t expect to get done until this winter because I don’t do much woodworking in the summer.
5/13/12 When I made my first rocker I cut enough rocker slats and back brace slats to make a second rocker. I got started by glueing up the rockers and 3/4 of the back braces.
I also glued the seat up. I was lucky enough to have a small amount of spalted walnut that I book matched at the center of the seat.
Lastly, I finished the circle cutting jig that I started a few months ago. It will be used to make the headrest.
I will have to make some templates because this rocker is smaller than my last rocker. I’ll make them as I need them though.!
1/6/13 started back on the chair recently. The arms are fitted to the seat and the seat finished. Part of the seat has some spalting which has proven to be a problem because as soon as i touch it with the sander it takes out a chunk. I’ve put a lot of hardener on it but I still have an area that is undercut.
2/23 – made good progress today rounding the arms, legs and seat joints. Also worked on the headrest. It fits the chair now.
2/25 shaped the headrest and drilled the holes. It’s sanded to 220 now. Ready for install once I get the back slats shaped.
