Pine seat, everything else white oak. Black over red milk paint finish. This turned out to be my most comfortable chair to date.

Nice work!! Why the red undercoat? Is the top milk paint too?

A beautiful example of a classic. Pretty much the height of woodworking skill.

Fine looking chair. Great workmanship—like someone said it just looks comfortable. Like to know the hours you have in it. Keep them coming.

That just amazes me! -so perfectly symmetrical and delicate!
My dad just gave me a couple of old ones like that put back together -i was so scared to mess them up! I marveled at them all the while. one just needed the rockers replicated and replaced, and the other glue.
I can’t even fathom building one from scratch! -it just seems like it would be impossible not to end up with somethinglike one of those 60’s, neon, star-shaped business signs with dowels sticking out in all directions!
