Bill Kappel rocking chairs

More pretty pictures of beautiful woodworking: Rocking Chairs by Bill Kappel. He does seminars, kits and plans on building your own rocking chairs, and if you figure out the magic incantations he'll mail you a 37 page document on how to build your own.

Note, among other things, the shaped everything (from seat bottoms to back slats) and the hidden doweling.

If it's 200hrs per chair (believable), that's $50/hr. Even if it were $10/hr, it's be $2k. It's not furniporn, it's artful fetish furnerotica. If it's giving you a woody, and you just have to have it, it's a decent deal. Unless you have a decent woodworking shop and 100-300 hours to spare.
