The Rocking Chair

The Rocking Chair woodworking video is a funny, time lapse showing the construction of a rocking chair from the stump of a rotted out cherry tree. I use no power tools and primarily use traditional antique tools. I also highlight my super hero Thor powers! I hope you enjoy.

  29. +elton herrera Well thank you very much!

  30. Did you not notice it being foot powered? it rotates as you continually
    push down on a peddle

  31. not an electric tool, but a power tool nonetheless.

  32. Beautiful work!

  33. Thank you.

  34. I can appreciate the craftsmanship but one question…….Why do you choose
    not to use power tools??? Just a curiosity. What you build is awesome
    though. great work. A true Artisan. I’d like to get into working more with
    hand tools but I need to evolve my collection of hand tools first.
