These are for the front porch. Plans were from Wood Magazine. There is a four part blog about the process. I should have made three.

These are great looking rockers and it looks like the quality control department has given them the ok as well. These are timeless projects that just seem to invite visitors to sit down and enjoy themselves.
Well done. Thanks for sharing this project.

Very nice rockers!
Why do you need three? It looks like the important individuals are taken care of. :-)

Thanks for the comments.
Mike, the porch is our Sanity Room. We love sitting and gazing at nature with a coffee or tea.

I have that issue of Wood Magazine and have given thought to making the rockers but its intimidating. Yours appear to have turned out perfectly. Am I correct in thinking that these don’t require a lathe? Hmmmmm I thinking about these again.

Wow nicely done. I guess making chairs is the ultimate test of joinery skills.
