I made this rocker for my granddaughter (Hannah) in Virginia
It’s made from leopard wood or snake wood by another name. The beak is made from yellow heart.
I personalized it with an engraved plate with her full name ,date of manufacture and Grandpa Wrights name.

Thank you. I’m not much a carpenter but had a lot of help from my personal Carpenter Jesus Christ.

Neat little rocker. No doubt it will be handed down and become a family heirloom. Nice job!

I see you’re at a shipping center, that must have cost a pretty penny to ship from Alaska to Virginia !

Thank you and yes it did cost a penny and my first born. I think that with the cost of the wood (300.00) labor and the shipping (350.00) it’s a 1000.00 rocker. Don’t think that there are very many people that would spend that kind of money for a rocker.

Sounds like a good investment to me, should yield a handsome ROI

Maybe no one would ever think they’d spend that kind of dough for a child’s rocker… but hey, where there’s “SPECIAL circumstances” involved (aka: Grandchild) who could ever blame you !
Good going Grandpa !

I do know the feeling of being ROBBED just to ship something!

Very nicely done and a unique item too boot!

Everyone is 100% correct about it becoming a family heirloom!
