SWMBO asked for a rocker so I decided to go the adirondack route rather than a more complex design. This was plenty complicated for someone like me who is slowly relearning long forgotten skills. What I liked about this project was the opportunity to use most of the stationery tools in my shop. I really got to work with my band saw, a tool I have never used before with any success. Amazing what following some tune up directions does for the machine performance. Anyway, my wife loves it!!

Geoff, that's really nice. As someone who has built several dozen Adirondacks, I can empathize with your statement about using:icon_thum your stationary tools. That's not a simple design as Adirondack's go. Good job, man! :wsmile:
And, if Momma's happy, everyone's happy, right?

Did you get a plan for that somewhere or did you just figure it out yourself? I'm thinking my wife would love one of them, too. "It looks mahvelous!"

Sure looks comfy, Geoff!!!

There is plenty of space there on the arm for the tall glass of iced tea too!:gar-Bi

I can see more requests for a build from everyone who has the pleasure to sit awhile.

Nice work!

Nice looking chair, Geoff. Is that froma purchased plan, your own design...? Is it as comfortable as it looks? What kind of wood is that? It looks like cedar.

Thanks for all the kind words. I used a plan from Lee Valley because it offered a conversion plan from a regular chair to a rocker. The chair was made from some of Ivey's cypress. I am waiting to see what color my wife is going to choose for a finish.
