Well here it is I finally pulled out the plans and built the rocking chair. I think this is one of those projets that I should have stained before the glue up, Oh and use slow setting glue.

I really don’t see anything wrong with the finish. The chair looks pretty good to me. I can understand why you would recommend a slow setting glue. There are a lot of spindles and dowels to fit into their respective mortises.

Thanks for the post.

Thanks Kevin but I can’t take credit for the design. I bought it off of U-Build
It really wasn’t difficult to build but there a LOT of litte places that glue squeeze out was a &^^&* to get out
