Anyone who knows me knows that I tend to talk to much and stick my foot in my mouth. I mentioned to the folks at the hospital that I should make a carved Rocking chair for a fundraiser. They thought that was a great idea. Of course I have never made one and wasn’t sure if had the skills to do it. But I never back down from a challenge (even if it would be intelligent to do so).
So that was early April. I spent the next few months studying Maloof rockers. Asking lots of stupid questions and building a prototype (last 2 pictures).
This is a donation to the Hospital Foundation for a fundraiser for the Hospice House.
It’s made of American Elm. It has been stained with Black Walnut Danish Oil. Then sprayed with precat satin lacquer.
I certainly am not a master woodworker. I learned an enormous amount from this.
Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.
