Very nice. Looks like it would go well with a cup of coffee.

These chairs have never looked comfortable to me but with your rocker feature I might like it.
Nice build and the cypress will be here long after we are all gone.

Les, don’t let looks decieve you. A well designed adirondack chair is amazingly comfy.

Wrobb, what plan did you use?

Hi,
I’m also wondering which plan you used. I’ve made two chairs and while I’d like to make a rocker, I haven’t found one I like as much as yours. If you care to share, I’d care to steal…..

Cup of coffee on the deck in one of these….. ahhhhhh.

Well done. I like the design of yours and it looks like a fairly straight forward build. Like you use of cypress, too.

Actually, I have a straight leg chair, very similar… so I have been staring at the rockers trying to decide if I should copy the one I have, and just make rockers for it…

Have to agree, these chairs are more comfortable than they look.

Thanks, Guys. I bought my wood at a place called EHeartwood.com which is near me. They had a pattern that they allowed me to copy but it’s really not that hard to figure out if you’ve built any adirondack chairs. I might suggest you copy the arc of any rocker you might have to get started. I would also blunt the point of the rocker. Your ankle would appreciate it. If you have specific questions I’d be glad to answer best I can. I plan to move the rocker further rearward on my next one. I have to build another because my wife won’t stay out of this one.
