From Phil Barley, the plans Author:
My Grandpa Chair plan has become my best seller in the last few years, and my Customers have asked many times for a rocking chair plan in my Adirondack style. Since the Grandpa Chair is more upright, it seemed better as a rocker.
Most upper parts are the same, but the seat is now at 14 1/2" (36.83 cm) off the ground, typical of most rockers. This allows the average height person to rock with feet flat on the ground. I copied a rocker from an old large wicker rocking chair, and extended it by 3 inches. The long gentle curve allows for a slow, comfortable rocking motion that is still easy to get out of.
The rocker has 21" (53.4 cm) seat slats, 2" (5.1 cm) wider than the regular chair. I have extended the height of the original back so taller people can rest their heads better. I have also kept the curved back seat slat , to match the curve of the back slats. This eliminates the "butt-bite" of the original design. The arms are still 7 1/2" (19cm) wide, but shorter-perfect for holding a dinner plate or magazine.
The plans allow a few variations to the construction depending on your tools and available wood. The rocker template also can be reduced 1/4" (.64 cm) in height to allow for the addition of a hardwood runner on the bottom, to alleviate wear on softer wood. The rockers taper in at the back, like most rocking chairs. This also centers the legs on the 3" wide rockers for a more balanced look.
The plans also include pictures and dimensions of the taper sled I use on my table saw to cut the back slats and back support pieces and how to build on of your own.
