This chair is 75% of the size I usually make my rockers. An existing chair design was scaled down to make the plans. It fits very small adults or pre teens. I had to make new templates and a new rocker glue up jig before I could start construction.
This chair was built for a local fund raising auction. The chair sold at the auction and is now being used by its new owners.

That’s a beautiful rocking chair and the I love the wood and finish. You did a great job on this rocker.

I see you made your templates like sam maloof with the extra paddles on the ends for less sketchy routing.

Nice looking chair, walnut?
