The rocking chair that i’v build is a replica of my grandparents chair. This chair has been in the family for a long time, 40yrs at least. This has a whole new set of challenges for me. I have never build any kind of, what I would call, fine furniture. I have been planning to build this for about ten years. 2016 Easter the family was at my mom’s house and we got to talking about it. I decided to just bring it home. Once I did that I dug right in. Thank to Bob Lee for donating the lumber for this project
