Rocking chair plans are a great tool to build a solid rocking chair. Then you can add your own creative juice and give a unique personnal touch to your masterpiece.
My Dad bought some rocking chair plans thinking
about making a rocking chair over a year ago. He has been real busy and
never seemed to have the time to get to it. When he got the news he was
going to be a grandfather for the first time, he knew that the right
time had come to make his chair.
He is the kind of guy who wants
to make something nobody has, a unique creation, no mather how long it
takes. Well, he said, I got about 8 months left to have it done on time
to rock my first grand child. That said, he began to go to country
stores and furniture outlets on the weekends to get some ideas. He was
determined to make a very original chair.
He went to Cracker
Barrel, got some magazines, went to the flea markets and so on. I asked
him a few months later how things we doing with that chair. He said he
still had not seen a style he really liked. Then a light bulb went on
in my head. What about this woodwork plans kit you got online? I asked
him. I don’t think they got any rocking chairs plans on that was his answer.
I was pretty sure he didn’t even looked at them.
So I went to his
computer and logged into the program. I pulled the chair plans and I
found several rocking chairs designs. I printed them all out and went
back to the living room and showed him what I had found. He took a long
stare at the plans and gave me a big smile. I told me that he did not
see any chairs like that anywhere he went and he really liked one of
The following week my dad had bought the material and had
started to cut the pieces of the chair. He made a special carved design
in the back that was his original idea. I was very impressed by the
final result when he got done a couple month later. He worked on it
every once in a while and took the time to sand it real good and to put
several coats of varnish to protect it. I am sure that using these
rocking chair plans was a great idea.
My best moment was a little
while after my son was born when I saw my dad rocking him in his new
chair. He said to me that now he had to made him a rocking horse and
some wooden toys. I told him with a smile that he knew where to look now
