Quality Father & Son Time!

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…

    Nice rocker. Would you be willing to send me prints of the rocker?

    I am working on uploading and sharing the Sketchup Model. You can then go to Google and download it from the 3D Warehouse. I will leave link or name of the file on a future blog posting.

    Thanks for asking,
