Quality Father & Son Time Continued…

The fun with this rocker project was the time that I got to spend with my son over the Thanksgiving holiday.

After he finished scaling the drawing from Matt Nauman’s picture and making the AutoCAD drawing (misstated on first posting) we made up a mockup out of plywood. This was a pretty rough affair but was done only to make sure of the position of the person rocking wasn’t too high.  I didn’t want my son or anyone else tipping over!

 This is what the mockup looked like:

OK, so it is pretty rough looking.  This mockup was to determine function, not aesthetics’.  It worked, but we added a “stopper” at the back of the rocker to keep from rolling over onto your head.   And we added arm rests, just because….  This rough looking  rocker will be used for patterns for the final products. We are currently in the process of cutting material and gluing it up. More to come in my next post…
