Absolutely beautiful, your choice of wood for the seat and arms is exceptional.

You have definitely got these down pat! Love the sapwood streak on the seat.

Now you need to come to Oklahoma and coach me through one of these.

Great rocker!
The arms grain is lovely no the whole thing is lovely.

Great job.

Another beautiful rocker, I’m sure she’ll get plenty of time in that rocker with the baby.

Beautiful!!! Looks like you’ve made quite a few of these. How long is the process taking you at this point? Just curious to see the difference in time between when you started and now.

If I am only working on a rocker I can usualy complete one in 3 – 4 weeks.

Very nice, I hope one day my wood working skills let me try to do one of these. This is a great looking piece of furniture.

Wow! That is quick to turn around one of these chairs. Do you do it full-time or part time?
