Hello friends,
This is my 1st RC, hope you like it, it took me 2 months to finish it.

By the way without Hal’s Plans I could never do this as I am still a novice in wood works

You don’t look like a novice to me. Great job. I really love rocking chairs and that one is a beauty.

You reference “Hal’s plans”, is that something you are willing to share? I have always dreamed of making my own rocking chair… Any suggestions?

believe me Derrek
I was interested in building telescopes, not rockers, but Hal plans made me attracted to this hobby more, it is well instructed and I am planning to buy his new version of plans soon.

more over this man will be your friend and indeed he will offer you any help you could ask for, he is such a nice fellow.

Beauty of a chair. Cannot detect anything “novice” about it. Great job.

A novice no more. Would like to know more about Hal’s plans, like how to acquire them.

Adventurer, you’ve done a great job here. I’ll look forward to seeing another one from you. :)

I’ve been considering buying Hal’s plans for some time. For those of you asking I believe the plans refered to are Hal Taylor’s at rocker plans .

Adventurer…thanks for posting this.

Beautiful rocking chair and telescope. I just finished my first Hal Tayler rocking chair and starting #2. I can see these rocking chairs can become habit forming. I am also a amateur astronomer
