And BTW, if I rotate my laptop 90 degrees, I see it is 8:05.

I cheated. Copied the image to my hard drive, rotated in Photoshop, and loaded that to my server.

This is a challenging piece, and you're doing a fantastic job!!
I don't know if I could tackle this with some of those drilling tasks..calculating the angles must have been nerve wrecking, I don't think I could handle it
Your drill press does look very nice by the way.
Very nice project, and your grain selection looks good. When you get a finish on that walnut you'll know for sure if you got your grain and colours matched

Last night I was able to get the rocker on it's feet and test how it fits! Today I had to "fix" refine the rocker leg joints and then glue them in place. Next is refining the rocker leg joint taper, glue up of headrest, much sanding and finishing.

Beautiful work. The rocker looks so fine that I'd be too scared to sit on it.

Regards,

Rob
