I started teaching folks how to make rocking chairs about two years after I commenced making them for sale, around 1998. Persistent fellows would hang around the shop inquiring about the possibility until one day I thought "Why not?" The first couple of students were so happy at the completion of their chairs that I knew this was very worth my time doing.
Thus, I embarked, in a serious manner to make available, in shop mentoring along with materials I could send out to prospective builders, enabling them to make this rocking chair. Whether folks come to the shop or purchase the plans and make chairs at home, the satisfaction is significant. I have received emails from hundreds of builders over the years expressing their personal satisfaction at fulfilling one of their life long dreams.
So now I am making my small contribution towards peace in this world we share, and I do not take my responsibility lightly! I stick with every student, through thick and thin, until they are rocking. I have never failed to respond to an email because the person was asking too many questions and I never will.
The remainder of 2018 is open. If you are interested in making a beautiful rocking chair drop me a note!
I normally take students one on one but if you have a friend that would like to come and make a chair as well I can accommodate two students at once And, the price per each is dropped 800 dollars!
Don't you think it is about time you made that rocking chair you have been dreaming about!
Come on out, I'll leave the light on for you!
