Rocking Chair, finally

Lest you think I've retired or taken passage on the Blue Nose, while I have not posted in a while, I have been busily filling orders and finally, finally have a rocking chair.  It's based on a the one featured in Fine Woodworking and was designed by Pete Galbert.  Pete actually sent me the plans a year and a half ago, and the plan was to build one for the birth of our second child.  Well, that never happened, but I did get it done in time for Brenna's first birthday.  I also made Brenna a blanket chest;  I'll post the pics of that tomorrow.

 I am proud as hell of this chair.  The finish is beautiful and there isn't one thing I would change.  All the woodworkers out there know this is rarely the case.

It really came out nice and I couldn't be happier.  And Cathy, the proud mother of Brenna, loves it as well.  I will try t post some more pics soon but have to get ready for  a show in Rockland this weekend.  Hope the see you there.  One reason I haven't been posting in I've been burning the midnight oil to get this chair done for this show.  Hope to get some more orders for this chair.   If your in the Rockland area this weekend, be sure to stop bye and say hi, and see my chairs.
