Adirondack rocking chair made for the dock area by our boat. The project involved substantial ripping, cross-cutting, and mitering of 2" hem-fir and 1" pine. A table saw was used for ripping. A radial miter saw was used for cross-cutting and mitering. A band saw was used for specialty cuts. The band saw was also used for making the rockers. The joints are glued and screwed. The construction itself can be seen from the pictures. Some of the tools used are listed in the tools secton of this project. Additional standard woodworking tools were also used. The finish involves multiple coats of satin polyurethane rubbed down with 0000 steel wool. Linseed oil was rubbed in to provide an attractive look after the final coat. The resultant chair rocks well and is suitable for an adult.
