The angles really set it off !
Great fit & finish.
Those sleek, swept back rockers are cool too !

That rocks. LOL! Nice work. I like how you put more angles on it and fewer curves.

I love tiger/curly maple and walnut is a great wood to accent it with. Awesome piece of furniture!

Thanks everyone, Tom Moser who now owns a fairly large furniture company, wrote a book in the late seventy’s about windsor chair making. I think it is one of the best books i own and one of the best on the subject. I got it from Abe books for a dollar. He never made a rocker like this so i just had to play around with the angles until i found what worked.

Have your say...
