  1. Introduction Dear folks, I have a wonderfully pleasant surprise for you, Hal Taylor contacted our community here at The Patriot Woodworker and asked us if we'd like to showcase his original rocking chair book and the first three chapters of his new book, to you all. The premise of this generosity is to help folks make it through their Covid19 Quarantine time in their homes, in their shops. To give you something to read, to take your mind off it all, and hopefully, to start your own journey in making a rocking chair that you and yours will cherish for generations to come, and to even quite possibly help you on your own journey to create a new business for yourself, building chairs. This is an incredible gesture by Hal, and I want to thank him completely for giving us this wonderful opportunity. The main book that Hal is allowing us to view, is the same book I purchased years ago for a pretty penny, it wasn't cheap, and for good reason, it discloses all the secrets into making these incredible chairs, the book takes all the mystery out of the joinery, the bends, the curves, and shapes, the lamination's, all of it. It will become clear once you delve into Hal's book and build your first chair. And the sense of pride you'll have, is incredible, I know it was an awakening moment for me building this chair, there is so much to learn and so many skills you'll learn along the way that will open up your mind to a much wider perspective in woodworking. View To view his main book "How to Make a Beautiful Rocking Chair by Hal Taylor" and his newest first three chapters that contain video links to the process of building these chairs, you can see his Dropbox files by clicking on the image below. I would also like to personally ask you all, that if you do choose to view Hal's books, please consider leaving the books in the Dropbox account, I'd prefer they not be downloaded for copyright reasons, and I'd prefer they be read and viewed online. Given that, I also completely understand that some of you may not have internet access out at the shop thus the ability to view online as you build would not be possible, so the download feature was left intact for you to put on your laptops hard drive to be able to take out to your shop and view it there.. Hal is a very trusting and generous man, please use my suggestions as out lined above. I completely understand there may be the rare instance a download must occur, but please use that feature sparingly, Hal put a ton of work into the production of this book, and we will respect that. In closing I'd like to thank Hal Taylor from the bottom of my heart for allowing us this wonderful opportunity at a great cost to him, but for us it's completely at no cost. I have worked with Hal for a few years now with my own rocking chairs, Hal is always available for questions, he wants you to succeed, he is a philosopher, a gentleman, and something many may not know, he is a veteran, and his heart is big.

  2. From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    The seat is really fun to shape in these rockers, you get to make a ton of sawdust!
  3. The bottom piece was the last one done. Then after closer inspection, it was done but on the wrong side. See the two holes in the two pieces. They line up and a screw goes in from the bottom. I knew about an hour ago it was time to quit and go eat. At least I can still carve the other side.. Can't win em all.
  4. Well again I made it out to my shop today, it seems to be a rare occurrence these days, absolutely criminal if you ask me! But I am trying my hardest to just get out there, wind down, and pick back up my old projects and get some shop time in. I will be out there more and more as the new year unfolds and a couple big projects start up for some customers, I am happy to be able to get things fired back up, and some additional income! I dug out my claro walnut rocker from the corner and I am going to get back on it. All the parts are roughed out, the arm billets are not shown in this image, I just forgot to put them in there is all. I snapped this shot an hour ago. The joints still fit nice and snug, and they look good in place. The first shot is obviously the chair seat, roughed out, the joints are cut in and the holes are bored for the back slats. The next image is the chair seat with the rear rocker legs set in place, they rest in their home nicely. The bent lam back braces are to the left below the headrest, the two front legs are in the back ground to the right of the head rest and rocker lams are to the right wrapped in white tape, they still need to be glued up in my lam press formed. Really it's all cut out, I just need to shape and fit from here, still about 30 to 40 hours left in this chair but it's ready to be tended to once again. I am going to finish it, and auction it off to benefit our community here. I'll keep a follow along going on this project.
  5. This project has been sitting in my rafters for months now, and I finally got a chance to get it going once again. It only needed to be tightened up a tad. To view the project when I first got it, click on Last weekend I pulled apart the joints, I wish I had taken photos, but I did not! Shoot oneself in foot. Today I used my favorite wood glue Titebond III and slathered glue all over the joints, and brought them back together with some strategically place clamps. This chair was as loose as a goose. It should be good for a few more decades now. It appears the original glue was an epoxy, it had become brittle and lost its adhesion qualities. The old epoxy was just flaking off. Tomorrow or Sunday I'll rub it down with some 0000 wool and then put a three part oil, varnish, thinner mix on it, it will look wonderful once again, and very useable.
  6. Yes! I was very busy this past weekend, you did not see me on here at all probably, did you miss me? In addition to getting the Maple Settee advanced, I got to spend some time on fairing and blending the rockers to the legs. This rocker is near completion, all it needs now is to be sanded out and finished, and it's ready for the gallery!
  7. Well yesterday I was able to get in the shop and rough out my arms on the rocker. It really was one of the most enjoyable parts of this chair build. I got to grind away a lot of wood with reckless abandon, up to a point, and put my own artistic flare into the final style of the arms. I am almost there, the pics below are still showing it in the rough, but I think I almost got the arms to where I want them. This first pic is the arm joint in the process of being shaped, the chair is turned upside down. I think one of hardest things I had to overcome while building this chair, was to not expect things to look great right away. Now I have developed some foresightedness and vision as far as what I want to look like, I don't get as frustrated as I did before when I look at a picture like this and think, yeegads! The tool of choice for rough shaping these chairs into submission. Before Arm After Arms, not done yet, but close! Thanks for looking guys, and I hope to get some more pics posted here soon.
  8. I got the arms on the chair, with the help of a couple clamping jigs and some simple techniques that I never would have thought of, the arm face to the back leg face is a perfect match. I didn't get very good shots of the process, so any explanation would be futile, sorry, the clamping jigs are all on the other side, don't know why I took a pic of the glued up arm instead of the one that was being fit to be glued, duh! The above pic shows how the paper is moved back n forth, I sand one side, then flip the paper over to sand the other face, bringing both faces of the joint into perfect compliance. While sanding, I am bending the paper away from the grit, so the paper doesn't put a curved edge of the joint, destroying the joint immediately. The final fit, perfect, ready for glue up and later, shaping.
