I have made it a practice to build each grandchild an oak rocking chair for a gift on their second Christmas. This year both Teagan and Jonas celebrated their second Christmas so each one received their rocking chair.
This is the third chair I have made with the first being 3 years old and holding up very well.
Made of Oak and stained with either Dark Walnut or English Chestnut and then multiple coats of polyurethane. Each chair weighs in at about 10 lbs so they wont be carried around much, but also don’t slide away from the child as they back up to sit in the chair.
