There’s nothing wrong with a test project. That’s how the great ones are made. We’ll be here waiting for the next edition…..

That’s how we all get started… Most likely, it’ll fit someone perfectly-it sure looks great. Stick around LJs, you’ll get plenty of help and encouragement. Thanks for sharing.

great first rocker. There is always smoething we want tochange in all our projects, but from this view point it looks like you have done a good job. The style certainly fits in with the room and looks great the way you have photographed ity. I like to build chairs myself so I like foward to seeing your next version.

try a little curve in the back like the seat has. I think that will help along with maybe a little more height. I think it looks great but if you a dead set on changing it I might try that. I have room on my porch for a couple. I might even take the culls. LOL
