No in process pics, but my first attempt at a rocking chair. Wood magazine had the plan a few months ago. Simple design with nothing overly complex for joinery. Routed round tenons with round mortises. The magazine used oak, but I decided on cherry since it’s what I had on hand, plus my customer (step-grandson/shop helper, who is 6) ordered it to be made of cherry to match the cradle I made awhile back. I did shorten all dimensions by 2 inches. Excuse the poor pics, I was experimenting with my camera (didn’t work as well as I had hoped). The finish is polyurethane.
Thanks for looking
