My first grandaughter will be 6 months on Christmas so I made her this rocker. It is made with hard maple and if finished natural with gloss water base poly.
Fun project lots of mortise and tendon joints. I did peg a few that I thought might get some extra stress. I used toothpicks for pegs, just a small dot when done. I was surprised how much shear strenght a single tooth pick has and as my grandaughter is small now I am sure this rocker will be put through its paces as she grows up. It’s built strong and I hope she saves it for her grandchild.
