I know there are a lot of rockers previously posted here but I finally get to scratch this off my bucket list. I started this back in Nov last year and worked on it as time permitted. I have always wanted to attempt building one of these but wasn’t sure if it was doable. After seeing Charles Brock give some demonstrations last year at Woodworking in America I decided it was time. I bought the package which included the book CD and patterns. Rough cutting the parts and joinery wasn’t that difficult however I must have watched the video and read the book 20 times each. I have never done much carving and figured that would be my downfall but I stumbled through it. The most arduous task is the filing and sanding which seemed to take forever. I plan on building another one (someday) which should go much faster now that I have the jigs, bending forms already made, and the most important thing, experience. If you’re planning on building one of these someday I recommend Charles Brock’s book and CD. Charles was a great help with questions I had.
I haven’t posted many projects in the past year as the ones I have completed have been large, time consuming or both; time for something small.
