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

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!
