Just finished another rocker from Hal Taylor’s plans. This one is from ambrosia maple. This is my first with book matched back braces. It takes a little extra time, but I think it is worth it.

Wow, its beautiful Phillip as always!!!!!!!!!! Wish I had just a little of your talent. My daughter is chomping at the bits to come over to your place again so maybe we will get there soon. I’ve come across some hundred plus year old wood from an old house that I’m going to start bring home tomorrow. Some 20 foot long floor joist, and 12 plus inch wide flooring. Just wish it wasn’t so dog gone cold. See ya!!!
You should post some of your other items like the ball thing and the other rockers.

This is great! I’d be curious to know how many hours this took compared to the other Hal Taylor rocker that you made.

Thank you all. I didn’t keep up with the time I put into this one, but it was much less than the first one. I built 2 at the same time before this one and the time per chair is considerably less just by saving tool setup time.

Nice chair- braces look great.

Congratulations! Well done! Did you use a glue line blade or a jointer for glue joints in the seat and headrest?

Nice chair. It looks like it’s made of one piece of wood – great lines.
