Lester Gillett's Rocking Chair

SOLID COMFORT
This rocker is made from recycled pallets.

SHOP OWNER: Lester Gillett
LOCATION: Independence, MO

    Here is the rocking chair I have been working on for too long. It was to be a Christmas present for my sister-in-law, but I just gave it to her in July. It took a year to make, with all the other projects I have going on.
     The rocker is made of white oak from some pallets I picked up. The most trouble I had was with the side rails. The chair is wider in the front than the back, so the rails are at compound angles, and the first ones didn't come out right. I finally finished it though, and I sure learned a lot. Enjoy.
