A lot of odds and ends went into the chair. Walnut added to the cherry to make the turning stock. Maple with a split, sawed it and glued back together with a 1/4” thick walnut to make the armrests. I had a quart of satin lacquer left from a project, just enough for 2 coats.

This turned out beautifully Bryan! Maybe another woodworker would suspect t was made from odds and ends (only because they’ve done something similar)! Thanks for sharing.

beautiful rocker. The combination of the two woods is very nice as is the super turned legs.

Nice rocker. In the main photo, when you look at it quickly it appears that the left backpost is flattened out, a weird effect.

Fine work on that wonderful rocking chair. Great wood combo and finish.

Have your say...
