I built this rocker for our local hospital’s annual auction. It is contructed from quarter-sawn white oak and lacewood. Other than using a bandsaw to rough cut the pieces and an angle grinder to “scoop out” the seat, all the work was done with three different spokeshaves. I really enjoy using my hand tools, which I believe allows me to create a more “sculpted” look. It is finished with a 50/50 mix of tung oil and polyurethane and then sanded up to 1000-grit and polished with paste wax.
