That looks awesome. I haven’t yet gotten the courage to try a rocker yet.

Very nice job, I’m sure that your son and his family will enjoy it. Is that quarter sawn red oak.

Magnificent! What finish did you use? For some reason, I think your daughter-in-law will be using it more.

Awesome! I made the exact same chair for my living room a few years back. Wood magazine plans right? I made mine from Luptus, very heavy wood, and I expanded on the plans a bit. I did through mortise/tenon joinery throughout with split tenons for the added ebony accents.

Hey! first of all great job, it looks great. Secondly, I am taking a wood manufacturing class and have decided to try and build a rocking chair for my final project…this is almost exactly what I was looking for and wondered if you knew where I could find the plans for this??ThanksJolly

My neice just became pregnant for her first child. She wants a rocker and swears she won’ have the baby until I build one for her. Time is running out but I can’t find one that is comfortable. Yours looks comfortable and you did a marvelous job on it. Please tell me it’s comfortable and that it would be alright to copy it.Kimball
