This rocker was built from plans I purchased from Wood Magazine. I had never built a chair before, and thought it would be a great chair to start with. I had a lot of fun building it. It is built out of quarter sawn white oak. I did have to build the rockers twice. The plans called for the runners to be laminated for 1/4” thick stock. I ended up with gaps in my laminations on the first try. I ended up laminating the runners from 1/8” thick stock, and this worked much better. It is finished with a couple of coats of just a oil/poly blend, and then a few more coats of wipe on poly. This chair is also very comfortable without the runners. It would make a great dinner room chair.
