I redesigned this reclining rocking chair to be built with Domino joinery. My original rocker design used traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery for the joints in the back-, side-, and front rails. In this version these m&t joints are replaced by domino joinery. The arms are joined to the legs and the legs are joined to the rockers with dowel joints, since, with these latter joints, there is no flat surface to serve as a reference face for the Domino's fence.

The mortices for the back-slats in the back rails were also milled with the Domino. To stabilize the Domino's fence as it rested on the curved back surface of the rails, I attached a thin lath with double-sided tape to either side of the fence.

Is it really necessary to use this site, which is one of the most open and communicative forums I've seen, to sell product, twice?
Makes me very uncomfortable to be an Australian.

Good Grief,
Another Flowboy with a little f. Went to log on after lurking for a while and here's another of me. :o Had to put an extra F in to register. ;D How did you derive your name and where are you from? Certainly not a common name. I'm from Oz.

Rocker,
Once again, thanks for sharing your amazing projects here!  It is especially nice to see how the Domino comes into play in your designs.
