Default OK, make a sturdy 'man's' rocking chair

This is one of the neater things I have seen in awhile. Has been saved for when I get the wood to make one.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Theo I would like to see you make that rocking chair. It might be hard to find just the right kind of wood (logs).

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Simple to find the right kind of wood. That would be free wood. But anymore, with my back, I'll be lucky if I can even roll one. Need to figure how to lift the durn wood, so I can actually work on it. Other than that, I'm ready for CNC work on one. That's Cuts Needs Chainsaw. Hehehe
