Well, there aren't too many flat places on this chair but there was no turning involved, either.
It's Walnut with 4 coats of Minwax Wipe-On poly finish. The design is from the plans by Hal Taylor. I tracked my time and ended up with 80.75 hours in this project.
I have a 7 month old grandson now and had to finish it while he was still small enough to rock! Thanks for looking.
