very classy chair. Sycamore is an under-used wood in my opinion, glad you are enjoying it. Great photos.

Great looking rocker, and really cool table too. I love the room. I could really relax forever in that room.

One question. Is that a concrete floor in that room?

Thank you for the nice comments. Rob, yes that is a concrete floor. I really like the floor but it caused the homeowner quite a few headaches due to a bad pour and had to be ground out and repoured. this is the only pic I have of the table before it was sold. If my memory serves me well the wide end of the table was 30+ inches. It also had a bark inclusion which I removed to create the hole in the top.

Great rocker with some nice Arts & Crafts touches. I really need to get some more Sycamore. I have only used small blanks for pens and I have liked it. Hmmm, I have a huge Sycamore tree in the back yard. I sure hate raking all those leaves…..

By the way, love the room photo. I have a big stack of books that I could get through in that corner.

Woody57, I made no formal set of plans. I just based the design on seat depth,width , height , back angle on chairs that were comfortable to me.
