Download a free project plan for building a sturdy Shaker rocker with woven tape seat.
When it comes to tough woodworking projects, chairs are right up there with the dreaded Bombé chest. Chairs are deceptively tough. One would think that a small project with four legs, a seat and back wouldn’t be so hard to pull off, but it is. Get the angle of your chair back wrong, and you’ve got one very uncomfortable seat. And don’t get me started on the idea of pulling off a set of eight dining chairs. Ugh.
That said, sooner or later, most woodworkers with chops cut on cabinetry and tables will want to at least dip their toes into the chair-building pool. For those intrepid saw hogs, Ernie Conover’s simple Shaker rocker might just do the trick. With its simpe and attractive lines, the Shaker rocker is economical to build, surprisingly comfortable, and functions as a great introduction to a variety of woodworking techniques.
Dedicated Sharpening Bench
Simple chair offers plenty of new techniques to tackle-Conover’s simple little chair takes the intimidation out of mastering a whole host of techniques for those with a hunger to step up their woodworking game.
