I just though that those following along in the Free Web Class, on www.kappelusa.com, might be interested to see my latest Hawaiian Koa wood rocking chair. One picture is of another rocker being made in my shop, but the rest of the pictures are of the Koa rocker. Note the accent of Ivory and Ebony on the top of the back legs. I use five Backslats (*) shaped to simulate leaves because this rocker is being shipped to Hawaii.
- Five Backslats or seven makes no difference except for the aesthetics you are trying to achieve. It seems an odd number is more often pleasing to the senses than an even number, not sure why, but that’s the way it is.
I know the picture color is not correct, but what can you expect from a woodworker.
Any woodworker can make these rocking chairs if you have a mind set to follow along with the instruction text and pictures given on my web site www.kappelusa.com. Don’t be timid, come along and join us for a pleasant excursion to wonder wood-land.
