It is finished. I promised to post pics of the finished chair so here it is. Son in law (soon to be) did a magnificent job on finishing it. He used 3 coats of polyurathane over a coat of golden oak stain.  The wife wood burned the saying on the back of the chair we came up with. The mixture of the different kinds of wood on the seat really came out great. Here are some pictures.  Thanks for looking.   

Roger.

You have done a fine job finishing off the chair. Great tribute! Do you think you will take over doing them in the future?

I am going to make one every other year. I would like to make something different next year. It takes about $ 100.+ to make one not including the time. It's not that I don't want to spend the money, but I don't have that to spend on one every year. I also made a couple of fishing pole holders for the wall to go to the auction. I really liked doing it and I have learned a lot about them. Thanks for the kindness. I also believe Uncle Rod is looking down and smiling......he's probably also saying, " bout time".                                                 Thanks.                                                    Roger.

That is some nice craftsmanship. I do some wood working, but doubt I could ever build something like that. 

Very nice!!!!

Finally got back late last night. Reunion went over great. Lots of people, not as many as expected but still a great turnout. Had lots of food and fun. Great to hang out with family you unfortunately get to see once a year. The auction went well. The rocking chair was the last to go up for bids and they asked me to come up and explain about the chair. I don't really like to speak in front of people anymore but I did it because it was for " Uncle Rod ". We were hoping his daughter would be able to outbid those who wanted it but she didn't have enough to do it. My aunt even told her to bid it up and she would back her. All in all my cousin won the chair with a bid of $ 350.00. Most ever made on a single item. It was  a very emotional time. Some tears and a lot of hugs and thank yous. My cousin talked to uncle Rod's daughter and said he would see to it that she gets the chair when he passes. He wanted the chair because he and uncle Rod were about the same age and growing up here in northern Michigan they had done a lot of things together, some they shouldn't of, and the chair means a lot to him also. My son video taped the auction and that along with pictures thru the making of it and pictures of uncle Rod will go on CD and be given to my cousin to be kept with the chair.  Thanks for asking about the chair and the kind words from you for the finished product.

It's nice to know you guys are there encouraging us on.

My next project is a highchair for my daughter. Hopefully this one will not be as stressful.                                                                     Roger.
