hi kemo well this time i am going to try 65- 70 pounds i have sold them cheaper but going to try for a bit more , they are simple but they are a bit decieving as you have to make sure certain pieces are identical pretty much the rockers and the legs otherwise it wont look right and it took me me a couple of horses to get the assembly nailed down as they can be a bit fiddly the slowest thing is finishing them with two coats of child safe diamond varnises as lots of nuts and crannys !

i am experimenting with quiker ways i tried an aerosol but bit messy and you have to seal with sanding sealer first i might try an oil finish that is supposed to be hardwearing
