Rocker

Finished a Hal Taylor style rocker with a buddy. He was new to woodworking and I got him hooked. He went out and bought several pieces of woodworking machines. The wood we used is Monterillo.



Brian shaping seat




Arrn blanks



Front leg seat joint



Headrest blank




Back leg fitting



Front leg fitting. It looks like a beefy leg but most of it gets carved away.



Back brace glue up. I do two at a time


Fitting to arms to the chair


Back legs getting glued to seat.


Fine tuning arm to back leg joint


Gluing headrest to back legs.


Seat close up with 2 coats of danish oil


Finished front leg seat joint


Headrest closeup


Finished rocker with one I did a few years ago. I designed the footstool to match the rocker style.

Thanks to everyone for all the kind comments. It was an enjoyable and satisfying project. It turned out better than the one I made for my wife. I have another one to start when I return from Florida in the Spring. That one will be made from Monterillo as well.

Wow! Stunning wood and craftsmanship! The leg to seat joints are just amazing. I can't imagine what a rocker like that would sell for around here. That chair would be loved for generations.
