The Pine for this came from a pile of Non-Treated 4×4s. Resawn on the bandsaw, posts were a bit long for my lathe (48”) so a drawknife and a spokeshave did the round work. They also did the front posts so that they would match. A couple store bought dowels. Some were to pin the motise and tenon joints, some were just for rungs
Armrests are held onto the front post with a Walnut wedge into the through mortise and tenon joint.
Right now, there are two coats of Witch’s Brew (Pumpkin Pine??) and there may be a few coats of varnish, later.
Sitting on the back patio, where it will call home. This was the first time I’ve ever made an Adult sized rocking chair, as I don’t usually make chairs of any kind….
Thanks for looking in….
