Seriously beautiful grain pattern. That lumber must have been pricey.

What a beautiful chair. Just look at that seat and headrest. Incredible. You’re the man Hal. I ordered your DVD’s and templates 6 mos. ago. I have seen the DVD’s about three times now-there is so much information. I have built the forms and jigs and have the templates ready to go. All I need is to purchase the Walnut and get started. I’m very excited about this project and I must tell you folks that you will not find better plans or more thorough instructional DVD’s than Hal Taylor’s. The amount of detail is incredible- and I know because I have plans from the others as well.

Wow! What a stunning heirloom you’ve created – so light and delicate in appearance, and looks very comfy, too.

I am a huge bubinga fan. It is a fantastic wood and, relative to most other exotics, it affordable. This is the first bubinga rocker I have seen and it is not an exaggeration to say this is the best looking rocker I have ever seen.

I feel inspired, motivated and humbled.

Wow! That’s much too pretty to send to NC. I think it should be in Maryland myself. I’ll PM my address!
