This is a reproduction of a child’s rocking chair my wife had as a kid some thirty years ago. We found the original in her parents attic when we were helping them move to a new home. When finished it will be painted and stenciled with a tigers face and stripes.

The basic construction was birch ply cut on a bandsaw. Glued butt joints with pocket screws and plugs.

It is a great chair.

Are you going to paint it?

A kid will really love it! That is a very nice rocking chair.
