In September I had the good fortune to spend a week at Hal Taylor’s Rocking Chair University. Rocking Chair U gives you the chance to work with Hal in the building of one of his world famous rockers.
The week I visited he was building a prototype of a new, smaller rocker that was based on a chair that he had built years ago.
This was a week like none other! From the beginning to the end I learned so much. Not only about rocking chairs but woodworking itself.
Hal is a great instructor that freely shares his knowledge, tips and tricks and more. It truly was a wonderful week.
If you are interested I have documented the week here on my blog:
Hopefully I’ll be able to start building one of these fine chairs in the near future. I guess this is incentive to get the dozen or so projects that are now on my Todo list out of the way! :)
