Have not made one of these for years, trying to get back into the swing of things.
You have some real talent for a floorist!
with all the above.
@rusty I love that chair! What kind of wood are you using? Maple?
Really nice looking!!
Actually, it is just clear pine. But it has a pretty pattern.
The screw holes will be filled with wood plugs. I make my own to match as close as possible.
Did you design the chair yourself or get it the design/pattern from a book or something?
Yes, the grain/pattern is pretty. Will you stain it or polyurethane?
An heirloom that will last many years.
Got the design from another woodworker about 15 years ago and modified it some. I will let my granddaughter decide on the finish. My wife usually designs the stuff I build, but I liked this one.
Have you posted photos of other things you've built?
You're awesome to build that for your granddaughter.
I don't have any pictures. I just recently got back into it. About 10 years ago I donated a truck full of children's furniture to toys for tots and had not made anything since, until this. We recently moved and I have room again.
I think it's important to take photos of stuff you make, build, create. Just cuz.
I had pictures on an old computer. It is around here somewhere. I have 4 laptops. Hard to keep track.lol
I love it. What a great gift. I'm very partial to rocking chairs for everyone, young to old.
Done except for a final sanding. Can't figure out how to set the date on this old camera.
I think she likes it.

Very nice work!
An heirloom in the making.
Pasted down for many generations, as a hand made chair.
A letter of authenticity that matches the date on the chair.
Boy o' boy, my very own co-administrator on a flooring and tech forum, can't change the clock on his camera. Does your VCR still blink 12:00 all day long?
Beautiful work, my friend!
Gave $10 for that camera. Gave it to grandkids. Should have used my Nikon 5100.
