    Rocking Chairs

    Well, my attempt at learning how to build rocking chairs is progressing slowly but steadily. The small one is cherry and will be a present for my granddaughter. The larger one is made from SPY 2x6's from the BORG. It fits me pretty well so it will be my "shop rocker" for a while. I think the...

    Upholstered rocking chair

    I am refurbishing a circa 1920 rocking chair made by Biggs or Briggs in Richmond. I have dissembled all of the joints, made the internal prices and kept the Cuban Mahogany. The seat is made with coil springs. I have tied the bottom and secured them in place. Should I also tie the tops? )They...

    A maple and cherry rocking horse

    (Is this the appropriate place to post finished projects?) I've built this rocking horse a few times now and I still haven't gotten tired of it -- plus the kids that have them still love them! It's from a design in a book called The Family Handyman: Toys, Games, and Furniture (book details...

    Pony-size rocking horse

    I finally finished the rocking horse I started when my granddaughter was born two years ago. She will have to be lifted up for awhile but she still seems to like it - as seen in the last photo. I made the horse out of 12/4 poplar, rough it out with a chain saw and finished with chisels and a...

    Christmas Rocking Horse for my son

    Hi, I finally finished this rocking horse for my 3 1/2 year old son for Christmas. I did have it ready by Christmas morning. I picked this up used about 6 months ago and have been working to refinish it ever since. I can say that if I had it to do over I would have just made it from scratch...
