Beautiful. Hopefully someday I’ll have the aptitude and ability to make such fine furniture.

Man, that is fantastic work and very beautiful design. I showed my wife your last two seater and she insisted that the unsupported span on the back top rail would be too weak. I couldn’t convince her otherwise. As they say, nobody pays attention to a prophet in his own land.Could you just say a few words on that so I can win the argument? I’m sure she will believe you.

Great Job, Beutiful. My dream is to build a Roker. How many hours of construction led to first.

The double rocker will support two people of a reasonable weight. A couple at 150 pounds each would be no problem.
You have to be reasonable. Don’t sit a pair at 300 pounds each. A single rocker will easily accommodate the heavier folks.
Aflixa, the double rocker has about 120 hours labor.
Mike, you and your wife are both correct, it just depends on how much load you intend to place on the chair.

Spectacular design and execution. I wouldn’t know where to begin to build a chair like that. My hat’s off to you!

That is an outstanding chair. I need to find a way to go to that furniture show before it closes.

Thanks for your answer Gerry. Shucks, now the wife will never give in when the next one comes up. I have to admit she is right more often than me.
