Scott Morrison inspired Custom Rocking Chair continues...Part 12...........

Here is an accessory to go with the rocking chair.   The stool is finished and the first finish coat has been applied.  A little steelwooling and several coats of poly/wax finish and it will be ready to use.   Rocking chair is almost ready for the first coat of oil finish. 

When chatting with the designer, he said a stool is mandatory when it will be used for rocking with a little one.

It allows the rockee to raise their legs a bit and not have to work so hard rocking. This chair is so comfy they may never get out of it.

It is around 16 inches wide, 8 inches deep and 7 inches tall and made out of the same walnut as the chair. Th legs are made from a piece of Shedua that I had around the shop.  The plugs are the same bloodwood as those in the chair.

The legs have a slight bevel to give a nice classy look to the stool.

We are still fine sanding everything and hope to have a finished photo to display soon.

Here is the stool top during some wet sanding  showing the wood color and grain contrast.....

Stay tuned for more updates soon......:-)
