The topic of the St Joseph Woodworkers Guild meeting on Tuesday, July 11, was “Sculptured Rocker”.
Tim Streeby, Guild President, has been building a Hal Taylor rocking chair using air-dried black walnut. He shared his progress, and the details of the famous Taylor rockers. He invited Mike Spencer, a long-time Guild member, to bring in the Taylor chair he built in 2010. Seeing one of these beauties in person was gratifying; but being able to sit on one was wonderful, according to many of the attendees to the meeting.
With Tim’s permission I also show some of the machinery in his shop, as members gathered and chatted prior to the start of the meeting. I hope you will enjoy the detail shots I attempted with a hand-held video camera.
