Last summer my brother (Mwilhelm) offered to instruct me through building my first rocker. I rounded up some 8/4 ambrosia maple and headed to his house in Texas. We used walnut for the accent layers in the runners, dowel plugs, and the caps at the top of the back legs. We cut a star out of the walnut at the top of each of the legs and inlaid pieces of turquoise in epoxy. All the small worm holes were filled with finely ground turquoise in clear epoxy. The chair was finished primarily with Minwax Tung Oil Finish. Many thanks to Mwilhelm for the help and guidance on this project and others.
