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.

I’ve never built a rocker but have been wanting one for a long time. I would appreciate if someone could give me a material list on this one. I sure looks comfy on a warm summer afternoon with a cold glass of ice sweet tea here in the south. Of coarse it’s January and 17 degrees right now but hey I can dream can’t I. LOL
