Made a rocking chair for my new baby girl that she will hopefully enjoy in a few years. Made out of 3/4” plywood and walnut. Fairly simple project out of Wood magazine. It was my first time concealing screws with a forstner bit and 3/8” dowel rods. Got some pretty cool looking sapwood at the beginning of the rockers. Primary tool was the bandsaw.

nice looking rocker. The shape reminds me of the desks we had back in elementary school…
