Great Job! I am hoping to make one in my class in the new year. I was wondering if you know a place I could get some measurements?

I posted this to Paul, might as well offer the info up to all.

I was lucky at an action when I spotted this style of rocker up for bid. I got the rocker for $45. It was in tough shape but I wanted it to study it’s proportions and joinery. I did a serious autopsy and the parts reside in 2, 5 gallon buckets as we speak. My intention was and is to build many.

I have a set of plans I bought through Woodsmith at

and printed online free a similiar set here

My chairs vary some but not much. Having the old rocker was very helpful.
