Decided to try my hand at a second sculpted rocking chair.
37 layers of 3/4” birch plywood
Inlays using walnut, poplar, redheart, yellowheart, zebrawood, cherry.
Design adapted from http://chairguy.net/site/Free_chair_plans.html

built one myself… now in the burn pile. sits way too low for my liking . wasted 3 sheets of plywood and some cnc design time. Is it an illusion or is your chair a little higher on the right side as you face it ? Either way I like the inlays.

You did a great job with this. You took the sculpting of the chair guy’s rocker to another level. Love the inlays too.

You did an amazing job on your rocking chair. As far as it siting too low, I have found that the one I built sits just right for my wife who is only 5’-4” tall. I guess the height is just a matter of personal taste.
