Great looking chair Lar, and of course the Cherry wood makes it a lot better. Did you put a satin finish on this Lar?

Don, did you make the same chair? Oh, I get it…..

This piece has a non-yellowing satin lacquer finish. There was a bit of a quantitative leap in the learning curve department of my woodworking development designing and constructing this chair.

Did you steam bend the rockers, or cut solid? Nice looking piece. I want to build a rocker some time soon.
