Ok.. here is the rocker now that it’s got a coat of hand rubbed oil finish on it.. the first of 12 coats.. the pictures makes the rocker look alot wider than it really is for some reason.. but I guess that a phone camera for ya..I will be borrowing a better camera to take decent pictures.. this rocker is for sale to anyone who wants it.. the templates used, are the templates Sam gave me personally and the chair matches the ones he makes now..

Ok..I added 2 more pictures.. of the joinery of the arm to the front leg..and the back legs at the top

That is beautiful!

I am not interested in buying the rocker, just the templates;)

Well done on the gain orientation. A lot of though and hard work in that one. Looks a good chair to sit while coming up with your next project idea(s).

Beautiful ! I love Tiger Maple : )This is something that you just have to see in person because pictures won’t do it justice.

This rocker is gorgeous. You did a good job with the wood selection as well. I really enjoy the look that tiger maple gives to a piece. I have to agree that Sam would definately put his seal of approval on this.

Nice job.
