When we learned we were going to become grandparents I decided it was time to build a rocking chair. It was finished before he was born, but not by much. I didn’t have any plans or instructions or experience in rocking chairs, and very little in chairs at all, but it came out okay. It’s quite comfortable…I used my wife to figure out how big to make it and where to place the arms for holding a baby. Except for a thirty yeayr difference my wife and daughter are about the same size. (Pretty neat, huh?) He’s almost four now and I’m about to start a second rocker only this time I got in touch with Bill Kappel and he sent me the beta on rocking chairs. It’s a good thing I didn’t know how hard these things were four years ago…I never would have tried it.
