Craftsman Rocking Chair Woodworking Plan

Rocking Chair A chair can be a challenging piece of furniture to build. The angled mortise and tenon joinery demands more patience than most other woodworking projects you might encounter. However, with some help from the Woodsmith shop, I think you'll find the end result well worth the investment.

We'll take you step by step through the entire process, with special techniques that include how to make a special router table jig for cutting perfect angled mortises in the chair frame. Plus, tips for fitting the rockers and upholstering the seat.

The overall dimensions of the Rocking Chair are 25" wide x 38" deep x 42" high. This project was originally published in Woodsmith No. 84.
