When I first saw the David Haig’s beautiful dream rocker on the back cover of a woodworking magazine I had to try and build one. He is my first attempt. Without any dimensions to go by I prepared paper skecthes and compared these to the photos to get similar proportions. I then made a full sized mock-up using foam core. Unlike the Haig original the various parts are made from bent laminations and not steam bending. Since this was my first attempt I used inexpensive pine shelving boards to resaw the laminations. The seat is m ade from a carefully selected spruce 2×8.
I have plans to try to build another one this time using steam bending and white oak.
