hi fellow LJ
here is a few pictures of a child’s rocking char that I made a while back. I finally got around to sharing it with you I did a blog on it when i was making it. ( http://lumberjocks.com/branch/blog/20356 ) it was the first rocker that I made, I had a lot of fun making it. I made a few mistakes but learned a lot. The chair is not perfect, it has a few things not just quite right but my sister Jo liked it so i give it to her. Jo gave it to her granddaughter for her first birthday. The timber is maughney finished with 10 coats of tung oil.
Unfortuntately I am going to be out of the workshop for a while. I was back in hospital there for a week to have a hernia removed. It was in my gut straight through the belly button. All went went thank goodness. I had 38 staples and 15 stiches, the wound is about 6 inches long. I got the staples and stiches out there yesterday and I am well on the road of recovery. I am hoping to be back in the workshop in full swing in three months or so. So I will be posting a lot of things that I have made in the past until I get back to making new stuff.
