Little Rocker...

I saw this little rocker on YouTube and Ken shares the plans for FREE for his foldable little rocker.

In the video He mentioned that a child’s fingers could easily get pinched as the chair was being folded up so I decided to build it so it stayed opened by gluing and pinning all the moveable parts.
I also pined the seat to the frame with 3/8” dowels (see photo 5).

Making this rocker stay opened permanently aloud me to add arms to the little rocker and make it more comfortable! Who want’s a chair without arms?

The rocker is much smaller than my last child’s rocker that I posted as you can see in Photo 4.

This is the guys YouTube channel I have the PDF plan if you would like a copy. Just PM me your email address and I’ll send it to you and you can print it out.

Very nice rocker Tony.
Good idea to make it solid. I like it with the arms,
It also gives kids something to hold onto getting on or off.

Nice work.

Thanks Barbara! I think the arm rest makes it look finished also!

Thanks LeeRoy! I definitely wouldn’t want to see a child hurt in anything I make. And yes the arms should help getting in and out of this little rocker!

Nicely done Tony. And the arms are a good addition.

I could use a rocker on my porch. Just a little bit bigger.

Cute chair Tony! I do like the arms you added. I saw a similar mini folding rocker in a flea market a few years ago. Took bunch of pictures of it for a future project (that may never happen) LOL

Thanks Tom! The big one is for 2 to 5 years old and I would say this one is most likely for 2 to 3 years old.

Thank you Candy! You should take the plan I have and try to build one. You never know if you don’t try!
Here is a little of what the plan looks like. I just printed these out using my old printer and glued the paper to some 1/4” MDF to make templates.
From there it’s…... trace…. band saw….. then attach the template with double face tape and pattern cut on the router table. Wish we lived closer I would love to make one with you!

Very classy rocking chair, after the little ones have used it for a couple of years it’d become a chair for teddy in our household and potential family heirloom.

It’s a beautiful rocker for the little ones Tony. Looks much better with the arms and all finished off. That is surprisingly smaller than your others. What age group would you say this one is for compared to the others?
