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.
