That’s a cool idea. I may have to copy that one. Nice job.

That is a cool idea. I could even see making a non-rocking version that could be used as a sort of stadium seat. Maybe a little too bulky and heavy to tote to a football game, but the idea could work for some applications.
On using the reclaimed wood, while I haven’t done this myself, I’ve heard that taking steps to clean the wood, literally with soap, water and scrub brush, can help to reduce/minimize the wear and tear on the planer and jointer knives. What I have done is to hit the wood with a handheld belt sander with coarse grit belt prior to planing or jointing to take off that initial layer that has all of the dirt and grit in it.

So did you steal this idea or did this guy steal it from you? Just curious.

OMG that chair sold for $12,000!!! I cant say it was my design as I saw another picture that inspired me, it must have been by the same guy, it did not look as good as the designs in the link above. His other chairs are also cool and I may have to build a few of those… I am definitely am under paid.

Killer rocker i really like the simplicity if it. When im using dirty reclaimed wood i use a junky plane with a wide mouth to scrub the nasty off. Tends to save a lot of wear n tear on those knives.
