Are you kidding me? For a mere 30 dollar investment you made a GREAT rocker! I’ll bet when your “pickin’ and grinin’ buddies” see it, they’re all gonna want one. Excellent job!

That’s a nice Rocker and you say it’s your first WOW! fantastic job just to let you know you said a bad word for this website….. You said PAINT. You have a beautiful wood grain there but if you must paint it why not Kenny Chesney Blue? LOL. Good Luck!

Really a nice piece. You got the touch!
FYI Charles Neil Woodworking. Charles put out a chairmaking DVD that might be helpful. I have not found anything as informative on this complicated subject in one package. Pluse Charles will answer your inquiries.
Good luck..Pickin and Grinnin..LOL

Oh yeah. Is it going to sit inside or out? Seal it really well with dewaxed shellac 5 lb coat. Then it can be stained and if outside spar varnish.
I painted a rocker white, now i KNOW THAT WAS A BAD THING TO DO.

Doc, I think I am going to take your advice and go with staining. I really hated the thought of paint, but I convinced myself it wouldn’t turn out since I used low grade wood. Thanks for the input!

If you want to make one with bent wood then Hal Taylor does a great job with his plans and DVD. Well worth the money in my opinion.

2×8s never looked so good! You did a great job on this and your joinery looks flawless to me. I’d just do some amber shellac on it and enjoy.
