Have you always admired the elegance of reclining rocking chairs, but been frustrated by the unavailability of plans or detailed instructions on how to make one? I hope that the CD I have prepared, with its detailed CAD-produced diagrams and full-scale plans, cutting list, photographs, and step-by-step instructions, will fulfill your needs.
CD reveals the secrets of how to cut the compound-angled tenons used in
the joints between the side rails and the back legs, and how to accurately
align the dowels that join the legs to the rockers. It also includes diagrams
and detailed descriptions of how to make the precision mortising, tenoning,
and dowelling jigs used in the construction of the rocker. If you have a
well-equipped workshop, preferably with a thicknesser, jointer, router,
table-saw, bandsaw, and drill-press, and are ready to undertake a project
that is challenging, but not beyond the competence of the average experienced
woodworker, my CD will enable you to produce an heirloom piece that will
be treasured by future generations of your family.
To suit a world-wide
clientele, the CD is available in two versions, with inch or metric measurements.
A third version of the CD is now available describing how to make the
rocker using the Festool Domino jointer; this version is in metric units.
If you have a Domino jointer, it will not be necessary to make the mortising
and tenoning jigs that are required to make the rocker by traditional
methods. The description and plans of the rocker and the jigs are in .pdf
format on the CD, and the plans are also included in .dwg format.
