A Rocking Chair for a Friend

In 1995, I bought the plans for this little teddy bear rocker from Rockler. I built it for a friend’s son and it was a Christmas present. I now want to build another one of these chairs, but am unable to find the old plans (after all, it’s only been 21 years…). Rockler no longer sells these plans. If anyone seeing this has a set of the plans, I’d pay them to get a copy made and sent to me. Thanks.

Unfortunately, that link takes you to a dead page when you try to order. Thanks for trying. -Bob-

Beuatiful chair. Why is a problem to make similar chair without plans? It’s not neccessary to match orignal in 1/16’’, I soppose.

Nice cute rocking chair. Can certainly see why you’d like to build another one like it, seems like a perfect present to a kid. You did a good job and it’s probably still treasured.

You may have searched LJ already and seen this
but if you haven’t maybe send a pm to the ones who once had the plan as they may still have it and share?

(sorry if this is Captain Obvious territory.)

I agree with Ivan (above), why not draw up your own plans and make them as close as you can? This way, you’ll have the plans for future chairs, and they’ll have your touch!

I have a copy of the chair. I’ve built several of these. Email me and I’ll do my best to try to get you a copy. Please note that I’m in Canada.

Have your say...
