We were blessed with our 3rd grandchild – and first granddaughter – this January. In keeping with my tradition of making rocking chairs for them I decided to go with a puppy dog this time. The body of the chair is made from butternut, a photo of a cocker spaniel inspired the quilted maple for the ears. While selecting the wood I noticed an interesting knot in the butternut that I incorporated as an ‘easter egg’ in the arm (last photo). Face pieces and ears are finished with dewaxed shellac, body is 3 coats of satin wipe-on poly. Also shown are the first two chairs, teddy bear and monkey. I used the Rockler teddy bear plans for all 3 with the monkey and puppy dog being customizations my wife and I came up with.

Congratulations and great work on the chair. That knotty dog hiding in the arm is amazing. Well played.

Great looking rocking chairs. I would like to make some of these for my Grandkids. Where can I get some working plans for these?

You can try this link for the original Teddy Bear plans. The monkey and puppy dog are just modifications I sketched out over the original plans.

If that doesn’t work then try a Google search for Robert Mead Blogspot and you are looking for his June 3, 2018 ShopProject post.
