My wife and I learned in January that she was pregnant. We were elated. In February I decided to make a rocking chair, although school would prevent me from starting on it until the summer. I found some plans that I really liked in the Wood Magazine’s Arts and Crafts Furniture book (ISNB: 9781402711749). As per usual, I made a few of my own adjustments, but the basic chair is from the book. The color is Minwax’s “Early American” since it matches some of the other A&C furniture in the living room.
I was sidetracked with a few other projects around the house and for the nursery, but I finished the chair about a week and half ago. The baby is due in less than three weeks now! We can’t wait.
Some more photos:
Here’s a photo detailing the bent lamination process I used to shape the rockers.
Here’s the chair nearly assembled (lacking the armrests and rockers)
