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.

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.
