Good Morning Chuck; Did you rememeber to set yoour clock back? I forgot and got up way to early this morning! Anyway…..I built a rocking chair that was also from a Wood Magazine plan. Here is what I did. I milled down a couple of pieces of QSWO; that I get in rough sawn; to approx 3/4”. I split this up into 3 fairly even stips and then took another piece of 3/4” and split it right down the middle. I use my thin kerf blade on my bandsaw. Here is the secret..when you laminate up your arms, put the 3 pieces from the same board back togeather in the same order and on the bottom use one of the pieces from the piece you split in half. You will not see the joints and you have no waste at all 3/4 + 3/8 = 1-1/8” ! Hope this helps
