Child's Glider Rocker
Child's Glider Rocker. 2000.  From published plans, slightly modified.  Solid cherry and
natural cane, solid brass swing rods, brass screws, oil varnish finish.  This was a bear to
make.  I worked on it on and off for a year, going backwards at times as I repaired grievous
errors, but it came out looking pretty good, and Julia even appears to like it!  I wove the
cane, which while not terribly difficult was EXTREMELY tedious.  This is done with a 'blind'
weave, where each strand of cane is glued into stopped holes.  I think it's probably stronger
than a traditional weave where the holes go all the way through, but what a painstaking
process it is.
