  • Rocking Chair w/Archery in mind

    Hello folks, I know I have not been on for some time. I hope everyone is well?

    This is a gift for an archery friend of mine. This is a modified version from "Bernie McKruit". I did a few things different used thinner wood and made it from Black walnut. Still picking out the finishing methods.

    Very nice. Dip it and deft it.

      LOL

      Thanks Mike.
      I tried a test piece with BLO/MS mix and I used Tung oil on another. Both pieces wgot a coat of Poly. Once everything dries Ill see which looks richer.

        I built one of those rocking chairs out of cherry. It is one of my favorite projects. Your archery twist is a nice touch! Post some pictures after you put the finish on it.

            Finished

            Done. Finished off with several coats of BLO only. No Poly. Wife and friends kept insisting that this piece looked better naturally. Im not so sure. I like the play that Poly gives wood.

              He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.

              Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

              I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...
