This was my first rocking chair project and I had a lot fun making it. I bought the plans from WoodStore and they were very easy to follow. The chair is made from quarter sawn post oak and finished with special walnut minwax.

Very nice and inspiring work. Thanks for sharing with us. A chair of some sort, be it a Morris chair, a maloof type rocker, or an arts and crafts rocker, is on my short list. The oak looks terriffic.

You know, the older I get, the more I appreciate things like a well built solid rocker.
Nice job, now go get that cedar strip canoe finished. :)
