This is one of four Rockers that I made for the front porch of our new house, that I started building over 2 years ago. They are a little on the large size, but so am I and I like to be comfortable when I’m relaxing. I based the design and dimensions off of an antique rocker that I had in the shop for re-caning. I just squared up the parts, the original was all turned. They’re made out of Ash and have flat reed seats, woven in a heiring bone pattern. I finished them with tung oil, tinted with a sandalwood tint, then finished with varnish. The seats have several coats of a boiled linseed oil and varnish mixture.
