The rockers are made from cypress and come in two sizes. The larger rocker is much more popular with people.

Great looking rockers! The look to be extreamly comfortable and a good place to take a nap. (-; Are these built from plans?

Good looking chairs.

I offered two sizes hoping that one or the other would be more popular and discontinue the other. It was about 50-50. Big people like big chairs and visa versa. Now I have to make both.

I saw this rocker that a friend had bought. I then made my own patterns with some minor modifications.

For me people around here prefer the big rocker 5 to 1. The smaller one fits some women better because the seat is lower and shorter.

Thanks for all the comments.
