The rocking chair is built from red oak. I built them from a plan I had found and modified to fit my needs, tastes and preferred construction methods.
I build them with a removable seat. I do this so I can substitute a seat with a leather cushion.
These chairs are a bit of a challenge to build.
The curved backs and one piece rockers are very measurement sensitive. If your slightly off the rocker doesn’t feel right while siting in it. Worse yet it won’t rock, thus defeating the purpose.
The joints are mortise and tenon.
The rockers are attached with both screws and dowels.
They are stained using my 12 step mission process.
