After the success of my Adirondack Rocking Chair plan sales so far….and the always popular Children's Adirondack Chair plans, I have finished the first of the 3 sizes of Adirondack Rocking Chairs to add to my collection.

I used 5/8” cedar fence boards from Home Depot, planed to 1/2” and used two 3/4” pieces of stock, glued and screwed together for the rockers. The process is the same as the adult plans, and went together quite well. Plans will be available shortly on plansinwood, Etsy and eBay.

I hope to have the Junior and Youth sizes done soon.

Thanks for looking.

Very cute project and idea. Why the young ones shouldn’t enjoy rocking also.

Ha! Judging by the way the doll is dressed, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say you must NOT live in Florida! :-)

The first three photos dont really show the size but when you click on the 4th and 5th shot you can really see the perspective!
Nice job on the mini chair.

Thanks guys…...Ya….live in Ontario and expecting snow again this week. My Granddaughter is too tall now for the Child size, and is waiting for the Junior to be built. To get the perspective of the chair, I used her Mother’s Cabbage Patch doll which is 35 years old….MY mother hand made the parka outfit !!!

My regular chair is fairly narrow. and the new Rocking Chair is 21” wide, so the reduction for the Child’s chair gives a nice wide seat of 10 1/2”....for “larger” kids :)

Great looking rocker Phil!! I have 10 grandchildren and I feel confident a rocker on the front porch will make them very happy. I’ll be shopping at your site in the real near future.

Great looking kids Adirondack! I’m sure they’ll enjoy rocking on the front porch in it!

This is ADORABLE!!! A few years back, I purchased a child sized rocker from an Amish furniture company. It is cute, and all, but this just has so much more “personality” to it! What a fun gift for a child or grandchild!
