    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?

    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 love it. What a great gift. I'm very partial to rocking chairs for everyone, young to old.
