found while googling...

I've decided I need a rocking chair at my house to rock my grandbaby. I had given our oldest daughter my antique rocker I used when they were babies when we downsized. We happen to have 2 fabulous comfortable upholstered rockers at our lake house... but nothing here. What! What am I to do to snuggle and rock with the baby?! So I started shopping online this morning and googling, and saw this ingenious design:
available for $10,500 at
Scott Morrison Montana Fine Woodworker

Not an option for my house (or budget at that price), but very cool don't you think?!
We actually have more than enough chairs at the moment, and I don't really want to buy another chair. So that got me thinking... what if I could add the glider/rocker base to one of my own chairs.
So... I googled and I found it!

Two options, one a glider base only, one a swivel gilder base. Now I just have to decide which one I want and order it. Oh boy, oh joy... another DIY project!

Is there anything you can't find by googling?!


  1. How on earth can that chair cost so much money?! You are way better off buildng one yourself! My vote is for the swivel glider base that way you can go in all directions when he's being a crank pot ;)

  2. Wow! I'm impressed that you found something so perfect for a grandparents' home. That is truly one of the coolest things I've ever seen! I'm going to definitely pass this on to my friends who have grand-babies. Oh crap! I just saw the cost and nearly swallowed my tongue, LOL!

    I probably won't be passing this on after all, LOL! Yikes!

    So, will you be taking out another mortgage for the rocking chair?

  3. Very cool find. Very BIG price.

    You are so clever to turn an existing chair into a rocker. I choose very traditional rockers. I just love the look, but they weren't always the most comfortable.
