This is my second chair, the first one took me 150 hrs. to complete and this one ONLY 100 hrs. I'm getting faster and this one was ALOT easier!!

It's made from North Carolina Bald Cypress and has Padauk accents.
I also made a little "rocking" footstool to go with it.

I hope you enjoy the photos, I'm pretty proud of it.:biggrin:

Nice job Rick! You really nailed the layout and execution. I'm currently working on my second chair using the same plans and, like you, am amazed at how much faster it is going this time. (I have a long way still to go on #2, though!)

Rick that is a beautiful piece of hand made furniture, worthy of nearly any home.
Very nice work for 100 hours, I love the book matched seat, Outstanding craftsmanship.

That's not a chair that's a work of art. Let's see, 100 hours at $30 and hour plus materials about $3,500 to $4,000 sounds right and worth every penny of it.

I joked about the lathe and Woodchuck...but I gotta say...that is a beautiful piece of work that you should be real proud of.

You have good reason to be proud Rick, that is beautiful work. Way to go. I love the way you accented them, fantastic. Great job. Thanks for showing us. I showed my wife and she love the rocking chair and wants one. I do not think that I have that much patience.

Geezzzz mate, that was a lot of wood shaping, by hand...!:eek: I just can see how you looked like after a session of sanding, white from tip to toe, huh...???:biggrin:

Yes, I know, I can see that you've got a "proper" work shop with all the air vents and filters going (very nice work-shop BTW...!:wink:)

Well, the craftsmanship and patience is evident, congrats mate, you've done an outstanding job...!:wink:

Cheers
George

Rick, the great Master himself would have been proud of your handiwork. That piece is Art in itself. Congratulations on a job very well done.

Rick, I was just admiring your work again and was trying to read the little plaque and the date looks like July 2012? Are you that stressed out or is that the delivery date?:wink::) Sam would be very proud of your work that is some beautiful craftmanship. Congrats.

It says 2011:biggrin::biggrin: I have one of those woodburning tools with my name on it but it just seemed a little cheap for my chairs. I got it made at the local trophy shop for $15 and thought it added a touch of class.
