well, finally put the wax on and buffed out.5 coats wipe on poly and dark walnut stain which I left a little heavy around the joint areas. Sits very well as you can tell. between this rocker and the lumberjocks website I may never get in the shop again.

You did a wonderful job. The build was great, and the finish is the icing on the cake.

thanks for posting.

Nice rockler. I like the tall headrest. Put a cushion for your head and you might never get out of it.

Great rocker. It looks much smaller on the first few pictures. You get a real sense of the size with the last picture. I did not think the back was that high.
