Had fun trying this chair .for me it was a challenge and it still has a way to go before im satisfied with it . the chair was made with white walnut or maybe maple plywood ,the finish was some honey colored stain from General Finishes ,and topped with poly some wipe on and the last coat sprayed.being in Louisianan we have rain to deal with and humid y finally got it sanded and couldn’t wait for a good day to go out side and spray the finish so put a couple coats of wipe on ,still didn’t look right .the weather got good and hot around 90 and not to humid around 70 .the sprayer made it a lot nicer finish .still got a ways to go on the finish just need a lot more practice keep forgetting to hold the gun right and some wind caused a few runs nothing that cant be fixed but did end up with a mosquito in the poly .
. it really is a cool rocker .and thanks with the help on it David AKA patron http://lumberjocks.com/patron he had came over and was helping me renovate my shop and saw the chair on the work bench and said that was cool told him not sure the plywood rockers runners would hold up on the ground he suggest i cut 1/4 oak and clamp and glue to the bottom thanks David they did the trick and it dose look good with em on it
