So, about Nov 1st, I decided that since my daughter was going to deliver my first grandchild right around Christmas, it would be really cool to make her a rocking chair. I thought Iwas going to make a Maloof-ish rocker, but when I saw a picture of the Scott Morrison Rocker Cradle, I knew that was what i wanted to do.
I had less than six weeks to go and not nearly enough time to spend on it, but I managed to get it all done and gave it to my daughter and her husband just an hour before they walked out the door to go to the hospital.
This one is cherry with walnut accents and really comfortable…even has room enough for a Great Dane to crawl up next to you (okay, not really).
It’s not my design, but it’s a good one and I’ll do it again if I have the chance.
