    Rocking Chair

    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.

    Wowsers! That looks great, Cody. Are the back slats bent or did you cut them curved?

    Hey Cody nice job.
    I have been wanting to get the plans from Hal also.
    Were you happy with them and do you think they are worth the price?
