Beautiful Rocker Doc ! l’m just buying the wood for my first rocker and l also am using Charles Brocks DVD’s . Just wondering about the biscuits ,did you go with the five biscuits a 1/2in. up from the bottom and solid spindles ? l noticed Charles talks about laminate spindles but in the DVD he uses solid spindles. l’d appreciate any input Doc. Thanks and again nice work.

Your craftsmanship is absolutely fascinating. That is one of the best projects that I’ve seen. Keep up the good work.

Great looking rocking chair! I love the contrast you have with the Hickory spindles against the Walnut.

If I could ever tear myself away from boxes, damned boxes, I purely want to build some rockers. Love them, yours are spectacular.

Absolutely stunning, my favorite two woods. Just looked at your projects, they are all beautiful. Especially liked the music stand.
