Rocking Chair Plans

A rocking chair is a great accent for any area of the house, from bedroom to living room or family room. Add a rocker to the patio or deck for instant comfort and style. A rocking chair on the front porch is a real eye catcher and adds instant curb appeal to a period house.

Children love to rock and there are many rocking chair plans made just for the little ones. Simple, child-sized chairs may be painted with bright, durable enamel, while a living room chair may be made of fine wood and finishes.


Whether you choose a mission style or select from rocking chair plans that incorporate turned spindles for a colonial look, there are plans to suit any fashion and budget. Simple models are great as beginning woodworker projects, while others are more complex and require additional skills and tools.
