This is the very first rocker I have ever built. It was a wonderful project. The chair is Cherry with Walnut accents. I could never have done this without the help of Hal Taylor who was always available by email and answered all my questions. Thanks Hal!
I entered the chair in our local art show,(giving credit to Hal Taylor for the design and Sam Maloof for my original inspiration) and the chair took the “Best of Show” award. I was floored. And to top it off, the chair sold!
I am currently locating some lumber for chair number two. On chair number two, I am going to put my own flair into it. Some design changes, drawn out rockers, bat ear head rest, soften the arm a little. Wish me luck!
