http://C:\Documents and settings\dalet\Desktop\Lumberjocks\P.JPG!This is the second rocking chair that I’ve built and I plan on making a third out of Cherry. You will note that the seat is contoured from front to back, I was thinking of also contouring it (slightly) from side to side. I usually don’t alter original plans, but I have seen rockers with seats that are fashioned in this manor and thought it might be more comfortable. Would appreciate your thoughts. This is my first post, not sure if the photo will be here.

Hey Dale
That’s a nice looking chair . If I understand what you want to do I would think that contouring it on each side
would give it a high center making it uncomfortable to set in. Many solid bottom chairs have what is called a pommel were it is contoured to ones anatomy making it comfortable to set in. I would also think besides it’s comfort it might look somewhat out of balance with a slat bottom chair. All said an done that’s were unique
designs come from by having an idea and giving it a go.
