Just finished my second rocker, this one in Cherry. This one took much less time than the first, which was done in Black Walnut. Maybe I’m fiinally getting the hang of it. Well, five adult kids and only two rockers, better get busy. Thanks for looking.

Wow! Magnificent! Great balance. I really really like the look. They are “beckoning” in there design and “warm & cozy” in their appeal. Two very important goals for chairmakers. Congrates on a very high quality project. Wally

Beautiful work! Christmas is getting closer all the time. How long did it take for each build?

Thank you all for the kind comments. Hal, the first one took over a year, on and off with a lot of frustration. The second took about 180 hours. Once you complete one you realize that there not as difficult as they look.
