Off my rocker? Quite likely! So, I was trying to decide what I should have the guy in overalls sitting on. I thought about doing a metal glider, but decided a rocking chair would be easier. Not sure why I thought that was a good decision! I had to order some bigger pieces of basswood for the carving, so I figured I’d work on the chair while I was waiting on the wood. It was quite a time consuming process, trying to get it the right size for the guy, and getting it all glued up and put together. I did use dowels for legs and rungs, rather than turning them! There are 26 pieces in this little 6×3” chair! I am pretty sure I could build a full size one quicker! But it fits him and it looks pretty real. I got my wood in, so hopefully I can get to carving soon! Thanks for looking!
