I made this Glider Chair for my youngest Grandson, Colby. I used a plan from Rockler to get the basic pattern. I made this chair from White Oak and my wife did the upholstry work. I used Golden Oak stain and finished in with 4 coats of spray-on polyurethane.

Now this is one awsome little chair. Very, very well done. How many hours wrapped up in this one Sawhorse?

Thanks everyone for the kind words….didn’t count the hours PanamaJack, since it was for my grandson I took my time. I will say that the back and the seat offered a bit of a challenge, but it was worth it to see his eyes light-up went I gave it to him….
