What a handsome chair!
Couldn’t help but notice the photo is nearly 5 years old – so how is the chair holding up?
I’m really curious about the legs (rockers). How did you go about making them?

the chair is still in one piece, needs a new coat of oil, i drew out a curve for the rockers on 1.5” mdf and then got a round handrail and cut it into 6” pieces and glued/screwed them to the mdf following the pattern, then cut walnut and mahagony strips about 3/16” and bent them onto the form with clamps and glue. then lots of rasps and sandpaper.
thanks,
scott
