My first rocking chair

Updated: Nov 30, 2018

Here are some pictures taken at a photo shoot at the home of Beatrix Potter in the Lake District.



Lovely English quarter-sawn oak was used throughout the chair, resulting in lots of distinctive oak figuring in the wood.



The back legs are tilted outwards by six degrees which makes the rockers converge towards the back of the chair, giving rise to some very pleasing curves.



All the joints between the solid oak seat and the legs are solid Maloof joints. This is a new technique for me, so I did lots of practice joints before diving into these. I am very happy with the results.
