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?

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 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.
