Topic tags/keywords: plans details chair rocking rocking chair schematic traditional modern rustic finishing refurbishing oak pine resource question

Hello all:

Does anyone have any good/detailed plans for building a basic rocking chair? I’ve been looking all over and haven’t found anything with much clarity.

Thanks in advance for any direction you can offer.

If you like the Arts and Crafts style, there’s a set of decent planes for a rocking chair in Wood Magazine: Arts and Craft Furniture available here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1402711743/

They have used copies available as low as two dollars and some change. The book also has good plans for other A&C projects, so it’s well worth the low price.

Update: Here’s a picture of the rocking chair from the book:

Here’s a blog post from LJ’er bkap. He markets his plans for a Maloof style rocker and has hands on classes also. For a limited time he’s giving anyone here a copy of his material. Here’s the link to the blog post:

My post at this blog details how to send him an e-mail. His description of how to get in touch with him was less than clear.
