I enjoyed making this rocker. Hal taylor has been very helpful, it took me about 175 hours including the jigs. Very hard to find 10/4 walnut here in the centre of canada. THANKS GREG

Nice job. Maybe mine will turn out that well. I have Hal’s plans just need to get started. Found someone with Walnut from 4/4 to 20/4.

I love the way you blended the joints. The legs flow into the rails, the arms flow into the backposts, etc. Gives it an amazing one-piece look! Just absolutely great work. Were the back slats steam bent, water bent, laminated?Thanks so much for sharing!

Looks like you did a great job. Hal is a leisurely 25 min drive from me. I found out about his chairs from a friend of mine. If I ever build a rocker, it would be one of his designs. I should go out there and introduce myself some time.

I do love the chair but I also know that if anyone of the folk on lumberjocks wanted to, they could make one of these. Not saying all would be this well executed but there are those that do and those that don’t even give it a chance. Try this in fir or some pine if you want to test on cheaper material. Love this.
