DESIGNED FROM THE GRANDPA CHAIR....A LOWER AND COMFORTABLE ROCKER

My Grandpa Chair plan has become my best seller in the last few years, and my Customers have asked many times for a rocking chair plan in my Adirondack style. Since the Grandpa Chair is more upright, it seemed better as a rocker, than the original low profile chair.

Most upper parts are the same, but the seat is now at 14 1/2" (36.83 cm) off the ground, typical of most rockers. This allows the average height person to rock with feet flat on the ground. I copied a rocker from an old large wicker rocking chair, and extended it by 3 inches. The long gentle curve allows for a slow, comfortable rocking motion, and it's still easy to get out.

The rocker has 21" (53.4 cm) seat slats, 2" (5.1 cm) wider than the original chair. I have kept the height of the Grandpa Chair back, so that taller people can rest their head. The Rocker also has the curved back seat slat , to match the curve of the back slats. This eliminates the "butt-bite", of the original design, caused by the space left between the back slats and the last seat slat. The arms are still 7 1/2" (19cm) wide, and will hold a dinner plate or magazine, and comfortably rest your arms with coffee in hand.....as long as you don't rock of course !

The plans allow a few variations to the construction, dependent upon your tools and available wood. The rocker template also can be reduced 1/4" (.64 cm) in height to allow for the addition of a hardwood runner on the bottom, to alleviate wear on softer wood. The rockers taper in at the back, like most rocking chairs. This also centers the legs on the 3" wide rockers for a more balanced look.

I changed the front legs to 1 1/4" (3.18 cm) stock to allow more room for the screws through the bottom. There are only four different parts compared to the Grandpa Chair, so for my many previous Customers, I sell a Retrofit Kit for those who already have the Grandpa templates made.

Plans also include pictures and dimensions of the taper sled I use on my table saw, to cut the back slats and back support pieces.
