Over the past decade this was a reliable seller from the shop. I make them in cherry, walnut, and walnut with curly maple spindles. I don't like to deviate from those species because they fit into my supply of "green" materiel and works well in my business model. I make them twice a year and I make two of each species variants. I have a quasi assembly line production worked out so I can get six of them done in a month. There is a small process photo album in the Advance Woodworking section of this site of a walnut & maple rocker being built.
