This is a Toddlers size rocker , also a puzzle ,it can be assembled and re assembled ,. it can also be made to stay permanently together , on the last pic is a wedge that hold it all together with a couple screw if a person chooses .One lady had hers like this as she said the older kids would take it apart to aggravate the smaller one that didnt know how to put it together . kids just sounds like some thing i would of done to my sister when we were youngsters ,i found the plans on ebay or heres his web page http://www.northwestwoodworker.net/ he sells the paper plans or the 1/4 ’’ hard board templets , mostly bandsaw work and trim it on the router table , this is small im makeing a larger one for bigger kids will post it when i finish it , this 3/4 ’’ cabnit grade ply wood ,unfinished as most want to paint it themselfs and save a few bucks.they are a fast build and i got three of these out of a partial sheet of ply wood maybe a tad less than 1/2 a sheet of ply , thanks for looking ,and Christmas is close at hand ,

That is a novel approach!
A chair and a puzzle is just too cute.

This is the best looking puzzle rocker Iv’e seen out there. Nice work!

(hunter71) Doug, there are many variations of this rocker out there. This woodworker shared plans to his rocker… but not the same model rocker as this very handsome one! http://perfectmancave.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13280

It’s a nice project and could be a great educational piece for the children.

I wish I had a young grand child still to make it for but it’s an idea for a Christmas donation and I will present it to the Guild members as a coop project should be a breeze to cut out with a CNC machine . Thanks for posting it and the link .

Hey! That’s a great chair eddie. I would love to ramp it up to full size just to agravate the Old Battle Axe. She would roll her eyes and say, “What are you going to do with that? My answer is always, “It’s yours, so it’s your problem.” Sometimes I just can’t resist giving her static.
