I built this rocking chair using a LEIGHT FMT MORTISE AND TENNON JIG. I like it because you can micro adjust so you can make the mortise and tennons to within .001 thousandth of an inch. This is now my favorIte jig in the shop. To finish the rocker, I used a transtint golden brown #6002 water based stain and let dry for 24 hours, then applied a gel stain, early american #603, allowing time to dry, then finishing with three coats of a satin varnish, GREG

It looks like a fun project. But I’m probably not the only one that wants to know—-are the rockers laminated, steam-bent, or solid stock and cut on a band saw?
Very nice work.
