This rocker is my third. I use my own templates and plans on all my chairs. This one is made of cherry. There was 45 hours of work in this one. I completed it in three weeks, working after work and weekends. These chairs are great fun to build. The finish is sprayed poly. enjoy.

A beautiful rocker that will only get more beautiful as that cherry ages. I like your design and joinery a lot!

Awesome. That would take me a heckuva lot more than 45 hours;-)

Thats a beautiful rocker. I checked your blog and there is none. The top back piece, is it one piece or three pieces attached to (wrong term here) “two vertical up rights”? Or is the back piece solid and fits the uprights with grooves and slots? I looked at your other work and its out of the ballpark. Thanks for posting.
