SWMBO asked for a rocker so I decided to go the adirondack route rather than a more complex design. This was plenty complicated for someone like me who is slowly relearning long forgotten skills. What I liked about this project was the opportunity to use most of the stationery tools in my shop. I really got to work with my band saw, a tool I have never used before with any success. Amazing what following some tune up directions does for the machine performance. Anyway, my wife loves it!!
