Topic tags/keywords: rocking chair plans

Does anyone have any idea about this rocking chair? I want to make it, but can’t find plans or any other pictures. Thanks to any thoughts or insights. Best, Buck

I really like this design, although I probably would never make one. If I did, I might take on the challenge of trying to come up with the plans from the pic.

I actually drag and dropped this pic into and came up with some interesting results:

Most of the other sites are bogus, auto-generated sites that clog up the internet. It looks almost like this image is copyright free, so lots of sites are using it for a generic wood furniture image to jazz up the website.

Good luck and let us know if and when you find anything. Keep in mind that even if you find the craftsperson who actually made the chair, they may not be interested in selling or sharing them.

Another challenge will be that LJ’s search engine optimization is so good that you’re likely to find your own post high in the search results. Kind of an infinite loop…

I did find a chairmaker’s website that offers some outdoor furniture that is somewhat similar. Maybe that could be a starting point:

I made a prototype chair like that just to see how it holds up and surprisingly it is solid. I’ll try to send you a picture of it.

This is the concept I went by.
