Shaker Rocking Chair Plan
This Shaker rocker is an ideal project for the woodworker interested in learning or perfecting spindle turning, steam bending, and other hand-tool techniques. All the parts, except for the arms, rockers, and curved back slat, are turned on the lathe. The back posts, back slat, and back rails are steam-bent using a shopmade steambox and forms. Shopmade jigs help align the parts for accurate mortise-and-tenon joinery. The seat and back are woven with Shaker tape.
