Folding Rocking Chair

The customer came to me to build a prototype of a rocking chair she wanted to mass produce. She had an oak antique that utilized a crude form of the hinging design which served as a model for this hard maple revision. The hinges were upgraded to aircraft aluminum rivets. Since all the components were templated before production, I made an extra copy for myself…and use it still.
