I first started woodworking because of certain projects I wanted to make for my daughter (now 3 years old). This one was a lot of fun, and I’m quite proud of it. Its made out of walnut and finished with minwax tung oil finish.

Very nice creation. I like uniqueness within the original concept of furniture. Not a rocker, but a glider.

Beautiful! Was this of your own design?

Thanks everyone for the compliments. The design was not my own, I used plans purchased from Lee Valley. There is one on display at the Lee Valley near my house, and my daughter loves to sit in it every time we go. I figured I needed to make my own cause she kept asking me to go so she could play with the chair, and I found myself spending way too much time and money there than I can afford.

I forgot to ask.. Did you do the cane work or have it done?

Funny how they help us pick what we’re going to make next. My daughter would love this one too.

That’s amazing. The thing I like about woodworking is that it teaches me patience. I can tell it took a lot of that to create this heirloom.

I did the cane work myself. It’s the first time I’ve ever tried it, and it’s actually fairly simple to do. I found a website that gave great instructions that were easy to follow. It did take me a long time though, but I think it definitely adds something to the chair.

I really love this, everything about it, the design is beautiful and the caned seats are a plus. I have caned chairs and I just love them.
Ok we all spelled caned differently what is the right spelling?
