A year or so ago, my son was home browsing through one of my Fine Woodworking magazines. He saw this Rocking Adirondack designed and made by Mathew Nauman, a student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. My son asked me if I could build it and I said sure. My confidence in my abilities was probably a little overblown!
I scaled out the design from this picture and made the attached CAD drawing.
We made a mockup out of plywood to make sure it would rock since my son actually wants to use it. We added arm rests and changed the rockers a little to accommodate them. The mock up is serving as a pattern for the rockers and I have started the task of making them.
My son is coming home for Thanksgiving a day early to help me out. I am looking forward to the quality time we will be spending together!
More to come as our project progresses…
