This is the latest chair I have finished. The chair was constructed of air dried Black Walnut from southwestern Arkansas. I made some changes from my last rocker I posted on the project showcase. This rocker uses six wider back spindles instead of the usual seven. I made the spindles wider as I find seven a little busy.
The wider spindle also allowed me to carve the back area where narrower upper part of the spindle joins the wider portion below. The leg to rocker joints also have a carved detail.
I took quite a few photographs when I built this chair of my construction method and how I use some jigs to aid in the building of this chair. I have a website now that also has a blog that I am going to use to share some of some of the construction details and jigs I used to build this chair with its readers. I hope you will find it interesting.
