This is a rocking chair I made from some southern yellow pine 2×8 lumber I had left over when I took my
Bench apart. I wanted to make one without plans and just from what I’ve seen that we Liked. I originally wanted to stain it and did start out staining it. I used some polysh$&€£# we had here and I did not like the way it turned out. Sanded off what I did stain and decided on letting my wife pick a color for the living room. I am hoping to make another one and use a walnut or oak that will not be painted.

Danny this looks awesome. Building chairs is very difficult and something I have not yet tried. I think you did a great job!!!

Wow! From a leftover piece of pine to an heirloom! Very well done.

The finish is excellent as well. Hard to believe the pine painted so well.

Your rocker looks great and comfy. I’m sure it will last a long time to be enjoyed. A great addition to the living room. Great job!

That looks great. Would also be interested in plans if you made them up.

Have your say...
