In the March/April issue of Fine Woodworking you'll find part one of a two-part article by Peter Galbert called Windsor Rocker Without Special Tools.The editors thought long and hard about doing this article because not only is there an enormous amount involved in building this kind of chair, but almost all the skills are new to most furniture makers.
Drilled many mortises at odd angles? Done much reaming? Balanced a pair of rockers? Well I certainly hadn't, so when we chose Pete as the author I requested that I build a chair in conjunction with the photo shoot.
This way not only would I get a deeper understanding of the project, but by learning where it was easy to make mistakes I could red flag these steps to Pete and have the article better guide other novice chairmakers...
