Thread: Finishing up a child rocker

    Finishing up a child rocker

    This is one a set. The set is called One Heart Two Souls. It includes a child and an adult rocker made from walnut. Both are built from the same tree with each part from the same board. This is where I am with the child version. I still need to do some more shaping on the front right side of the seat.
