How to Build a Rocking Chair

Everyone loves a good rocking chair – whether it is for quiet time drinking coffee, rocking a baby to sleep, or relaxing with friends and family around a fire… It is so easy to build, and I will share how to build a rocking chair that is sturdy and will become a family heirloom (maybe!).

For my chair, I used pieces of 2×6 from the cull bin at Home Depot that I ripped into 2x2s. I also used pieces of 1×6 ripped to 1×3 for the aprons. This chair was very inexpensive, and easy to contruct!  I cut the rockers for my chair using a bandsaw – a jigsaw can also be used. The back legs are cut as two pieces then assembled. They can also be drawn on a 2×6 then cut out as one piece using a jigsaw or a bandsaw. Follow the plans closely, cut the angles as shown, and the pieces will fit together perfectly!

Step One

Cut the pieces for the back legs. Cut the angles in each piece as shown. I marked the position for the pocket holes so that I didn’t get confused because there will be a right leg and a left leg. With the pocket hole jig set for 1-1/2″ material, drill the pocket holes as shown. The pocket holes for the upper back piece should be placed as close together as possible so that the screws don’t poke through the front face of the legs. Assemble the legs using glue and 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws.

 

Step Two

Cut the pieces for the back frame. Drill pocket holes in each end of the 2×2 back frame piece, then set the pocket hole jig for 3/4″ material and drill pocket holes in each end of the apron. Assemble the back frame using glue and the appropriate screws for the material (1-1/4″ pocket hole screws for 3/4″ material, and 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws for 1-1/2″ material.).

Step Three

Cut the pieces for the front frame. Drill pocket holes in each end of the apron, then reset the pocket hole jig for 1-1/2″ material and drill pocket holes in one end of each of the legs. Secure the apron to the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.

 

Step Four

Cut the pieces for the side stretchers and cut the angle as shown. Set the pocket hole jig for 3/4″ material and drill pocket holes in each end. Secure the stretchers to the front and back legs as shown using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. the 1 last update 2020/07/02 Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for

 

Step Five

Cut the pieces for the rockers. For my chair, I drew the rockers on the 2×4 pieces then used the bandsaw to cut them out. After cutting, clamp them together and sand. This will help make them identical! Position on the bottom of the front and back legs as shown, then secure using glue and countersunk 2-1/2″ screws. (I originally drilled pocket holes in the bottom of the front and back legs to attach the rockers but couldn’t get the drill in there to drive the screws!)

Step Six

Cut the piece for the lower stretcher and drill pocket holes in each end. Secure to the center of the rockers using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. The top face of the stretcher will be flush with the top face of the rockers.

 

Step Seven

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Cut the pieces for the back slats and drill pocket holes in each end. Position the slats as shown with the front faces flush with the front of the back frame using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.

Cut the piece for the seat and cut the notches using a jigsaw. Apply edge banding to the exposed edges of the plywood, if desired. Secure the seat to the frame using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails.

 

Step Nine

Cut the pieces for the arms and cut the angle in the back edge as shown. Drill pocket holes in the back edge noting that there will be a right and a left. Secure the arms to the front leg and upper back leg as shown using glue and 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws.

 

Finish as desired!

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for I have always wanted to learn how to build a rocking chair so I decided to whip up these plans, then test them out. I did not run into any problems and am thrilled with the results – I hope you will be, as well! I plan on painting my chair with exterior paint and using it outside!
