That’s a wrap! The Gamble House Rocking Chair is complete. In this weekly update I go over gluing the rockers to the legs, all of the final preparation on the chair, and applying finish to the chair.

Congratulations on finishing the chair—it looks amazing!

When you get it into the house, I think a nice bourbon in it is in order!

Thanks Dean! I had a nice American Whiskey and listed to some Frank Sinatra.

I’m surprised (pleasantly) that a young guy such as yourself listens to the Chairman of the Board! I enjoy his Greatest Hits CD every now and then.

You get extra points for knowing all five of the Rat Pack—no Wiki.

And I believe Frank enjoyed a whiskey or two in his day….......!

Without a wiki only Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.

I actually like Dean Martin more… I know many would not be happy with that but I do. And Sammy’s album Live at the Coconut Grove is fantastic.

Well, you got the big three!

So, the Rat Pack was: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. Would have been fun to hang out with those guys in the ‘60’s in Las Vegas….......!

(By the way, you can catch Dean and Sammy in the movie, Cannonball Run. Something about Sammy Davis Jr. as a Priest just cracks me up!)

Thanks Dean! I just posed the finished project. I have some detailed shots of the chair there.
