1. Paul (and the team),
    Thank you for clarifying the thickness of the material. As you know, we cannot get the 7/8 inch or 1-3/4 inch material thickness here in the U.S., unless we special order it (and that would cost a lot more). We have to work with 3/4 inch and 1-1/2 inch material. I was unsure if this thickness would be sufficient or stong enough and I was worried that I would have to special order the material to do this project. You not only helped save my wallet from complete desolation, but also my sanity from having an unhappy wife! 😉

    Thank’s again!

  2. I have a serious question, but no idea where I should be asking this things…

    Well, in my country the stores don’t seem to specify what kind of cut they make to the tree, and I’m a bit worried about it for this project, because this one seems to be much more delicate than the others, Will it be of too much importance, or is there anything I can do to avoid this problem (like buying an 8×8 piece and cut it myself… or something like that)?

    1. Hello Claudio,
      They don’t often specify that in the UK either. It is more a matter of having a look at the stock and looking at the grain orientation. We usually machine the stock to size ourselves from the standard stock sizes available. However, there shouldn’t be a problem with stock cut to size for you. It may just be harder to match it up visually.

  3. As usual I enjoy all the projects presented by Paul and the entire team involved. I’ve built several, but not in parallel. This is the case with the rocking chair which I am about to embark on building for a birthday present for my Mother turning 90 this coming Valentines Day.
    I’ve studied all the videos and have read through the cut list and plan drawings. One question I have that does not seem to have been asked or addressed during the revised drawings is should the measurements for the rear post leg (pg 3/3) read Qty 2 and W 1 3/4 as opposed to Qty 1 and W 7 1/2 as reflected?
    It seems intuitive, but I just wanted to confirm.
    Thank you all,

      1. Thanks Izzy
        I was looking at it from the point of view it’s 2 legs each 1 3/4 by 1 3/4 and not by the cut list perspective where getting 2 legs from one board! I know I would be getting both from one, but wasn’t looking at it that way.
        Thanks for pointing that out. It didn’t prevent me from moving forward, but I will tell you I did keep trying to figure out why it was written as such! hahaha
        Happy wood working,
