Guys, been asked to make some of these and was wondering if anyone has built some they really like. Found a couple designs online, but would like to hear from someone who has actually sat in them. :)

Lew, I have made some regular ones as well as the Grandpa/ma version much easier to lift and still very comfortable. More upright design.

Made some chairs but not a rocker. Mine are flat backed, old design.

I made two chairs and a two seater out of cyprees about 8-10 years ago that set on our back porch. I can't remember where I got the plans. They are very comfortable to set in. We have cushions on them. Every one who visits like them.

I built a few some years ago, but I just looked at some pics, and built them to suit myself.

Pat, I made a love seat rocker off a plan I got on line, it could either be a stationary, single seat, or single rocker or double rocker.

 

There is a ton of free plans out there, lots of different variations. the one I made for a friend,was too low for me, but just right for the grandma and grandkids.

I need a cushion when i sit in them, I picked this plan because it had more conture to the seat.

Herb, I like the look of the base much better on yours than the plan I found. The bearing surface of the rear base is much more solid looking. Do you remember who's plans they were? 

Still haven't found the right one yet.

I made two a-chairs about 18 mos ago.  Wife and I liked both.  We use a light pad over them (more for dust control).  Both plans free.  Ramseys design has seat vs back at 90 degrees and I found that 95 degrees more comfortable.  Had to make the arm pieces longer.  I liked the chairs, so I made footstools and a table to match.  I'm not a good intuitive ww-er, so I plan out my step by step actions and write them into a scenario, including final edits.  This means I have "production" files on both chairs, and the stools and the table.  Let me know if you'd like copies.

We also have a double Adirondack that one of our members submitted in our Files Downloads section, it may be of use.

Pat, I am glad you bumped this thread, I missed your request, I think it was the Lee Vally plan I used.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
