Excellent work. I can tell by looking at it how relaxing it will be. Great job on the design. Maybe grandpa can do some rocking on it to with his gran daughter.

WoW!!! That is a great looking chair.
I bet your Daughter will love, it looks so comfy.
Congratulations on a wonderful job.

Maybe I should have made a rocking chair. I made a cradle that was never used.
