    A quick forum search for "rocking chair" led to this link to the Vectric forum: http://www.vectric.com/forum/viewtop...=asc&start=180

    Dave,

    Thank you. I have done a search on the ShopBot, Vectric and 100K Garages forums and came up with the same thing.

    The chair is 6 pieces.

    2 Rocking Sides
    1 Seat
    1 Back
    1 Front Rail
    1 Key

    All pieces lock together.

    Thank you,

    Greg

    Default File

    I have an Apsire file I will post. I need to clean it up a bit, as I had a few changes. Give me a couple of days.

    Bob - The first picture is what was brought to me and I was asked to remake it. I spend some time with my students making it. We traced it and then plotted the points. Cut it out, fixed some problems and the newest pictures were the 3rd test cut. I had to replace the back and the seat because I needed to adjust the tongue on the back, which was off.

    3/4" MDF and 1/2" End Mill

    Default Rocking Chair File

    3/4" MDF

    1/2" Helical End Mill and then I used a round over bit on a small hand held router.

    I have found the best way of cutting the back is to make a pocket, otherwise the small pieces come out.

    Cut to the inside with a tab on the ovals on the chair sides.

    Cut out the profile with 4 passes and use tabs.

    I can't get the files to upload, so if you are interested in a copy, send me a message.

    Thank you,

    Greg
