Project Information

This rocker is based on a set of plans I bought. It was supposed to be made of maple but I'm fond of oak and that's what I used, some of it up to 8/4's. The slats you see in the back and all the way to the knees are only glued on one end and the ends alternate to give a spring effect, unbelievably comfortable. The only joints are what you see, no fasteners of any type, just glue. I bought and used the "sanding mops" and I'm so glad I did because I would have still been sanding… This project took about 2 1/2 months of part time work.
The design of the chair is such that when you tip it back as far as it will go and let it rock on an absolutely smooth surface, it'll rock by itself for what seems like ages.

Hi Jack! Nice rocker. Looks comfortable and beautiful. Looks heavy, but that's a good thing in a rocker when it's well balanced and rocks like you say. Great project.
