Got to see Jeff’s latest rocker firsthand at the Lie-Nielsen Tool show in Cincinnati this past weekend. Jeff’s a really great guy, and it was very encouraging talking to him about his early experiences.

I own a few of Jeff’s books, in fact I think all of them. So last year when I had a few questions, I emailed him and he was kind enough to respond. I have not met him but think the world of him for his kindness.

I hope he puts the plans for the rocker in his next book.

I met him as well on Saturday. His mortising jigs are awesome and his chair is outstanding. His book Chairmaking & Design is one of my favorite books. All around a great guy!

Jeff said he’s pitching another book, but he wasn’t sure if the publisher was going to go for it yet or not. Asking him about his design process, he said the rocker took him close to 3 years to design and build. He said there’s a couple things that he wants to adjust in another iteration, but it was pretty much done now. That’s 3 years of inspiration, designing, iterating and building. Impressive.
