This is a nice chair and it is even more special since you built it with only hand tools. That is an accomplishment.
Thanks for the post.

Nice chair Kevin. I watched Roy Underhill on PBS Saturday and his guest was building this exact same chair. Yours looks just as good or better. Great job. Thanks for the post. I love stuff like this.JJ

Very nice, especially considering the method you used to build it.

Great Chair Kevin!
I will be heading up to New Hampshire next week to take another class with Mike Dunbar at the Windsor Institute. We will be doing a Sack Back Rocker with a comb extended above the bow and I can’t wait to build this chair ‘cause it is one of my favorites. There’s nothing quite like being able to leave the power tools behind and build a beautiful piece of furniture that will last long enough for future generations to enjoy. Once again great rocker!

looks great Kevin, are you going with Milk paint for the finish or something else? one of these days I’m going to try my hand at a few of these, but I’ve got a lot of learning to do when it comes to hand tools and proper wood selection. I’ve got a couple books but haven’t read either one yet : )
keep it up and thank you for sharing
