For the rockers I decided to use bent laminations. First I built a form out of scraps at a 42″ radius, then I machined strips of flat-sawn white oak to make up the rockers. Each rocker consists of six 1/8″ layers glued together with urea formaldehyde glue. I probably over-did the clamps but having never used this type of glue before I played it safe.
For this pic I wiped the sanded rocker with water to highlight the different layers. Once finished the layers will be indistinguishable from one another.
Next I scribed the legs to the curve of the rocker, attached them and prepped for finishing.
