I am a Nuclear Electrician (Submarines) Petty Officer First Class. I don't get to do as much wood working as i would like to, but i sure have fun doing it. I mostly enjoy figuring out new things. I don't pretend to know a lot about wood working. I do pride myself in figuring out how to make things work. Hopefully Lumberjocks will help me in future projects.

I thought i would post this rocking chair i made. I actually made two of them for a friend of mine. Now the kids are no longer arguing over who gets to sit in the rocking chair with mommy during story time. I am not sure how i enter the project into the weekly drawing of top projects so if anyone out there knows how i would appreciate the info. The rocker runners are made from Hickory and the rest of the chairs are made from Hardened Maple.
