Visually exquisite. The ultimate strength of the joinery concerns me though.

Think about a chair, four feet on the ground, and the stresses that it bears.

Now add in rockers, and your weight is shifted from one angle to another multiple times a minute. I think the joinery on a rocker requires multiples of the strength necessary in a simple side chair.
