I made six of these rocking chairs for my two older brothers and their wives and my parents as well for Christmas. I had them hidden behind my parent’s garage and walked around there to find JR the giant polydactyl cat lounging on them. Everyone was surprised and seemed to enjoy them. Until yesterday I didn’t have my table saw at my new home so I wasn’t able to make them the fine woodworking projects that I had in mind so these were made using basic handtools. Sitting space is 23” wide which is large compared to other chairs but we are expecting some little ones in the family soon so I thought the extra room would be nice. Enjoy!

Thanks for the comments. I’m not sure what JR thinks he is!
