Another chainsaw project and it tickled me getting the measurements for the seat. I found her in the house taking a nap and I measured her bottom and woke up asking me what was I doing. I told her you will see.

The rockers came off a limb curved just right, split it down the middle. Had to do a little whittleing to get it to rock good.

“No body” has ever connected there hinny to this chair, the measurements was applied and it just fits her.

Special wood, for my mom used to play under this old walnut tree when she was about three or four years old. Wish I could have taken a pic when I cut it down back in the sixty’s. standing out in the middle of the old place that was homesteaded dead, nearly all the limbs, knocked off by the wind over the years. (where the rocker limb came from. Standing out in the middle of St. Regis paper company land, sneaked in there and cut it down with a cross cut saw. God, that’s a story in it’’s self. Semper Fi!

It does capture a moment in time that is pretty memorable for both the hunter and the prey. Nice job.

I pulled my elk off and put the drink of my choice up. Going to put furniture up and didn’t want to take up too much space. Delete the comments on the elk if you would like and thanks. Semper Fi.

Nice project. You must have a finer tooth blade on your chain saw than I do. Only a Marine could get caught with a tape measure stretched across his wife caboose, and live to tell about. ;] No kidding, Semper Fi!
