    Default Platform Rocking Chair Plans

    I drew plans up 14 years ago for a platform rocker the plan is from a Chair that I was loaned, it was in pieces and only half there and it had been through a fire, The chair takes about 40 hours to build and is guaranteed to sort out any problems with spindle turning. To date I have made a total of six Chairs.

    If any one wants a copy of the plan PM me and I will email (the file is to big for this forum)


    Regards

    Hi Ratchet

    It is easy to make, you need a lathe with at least a 3' bed and a steady rest (the steady can be made using two skate board wheels) the rest is practice and persistence as I said earlier it sorts out your spindle turning skills and the skew chisel.

    Every one PLEASE PM your email address as the pdf file is about 450k and too big for this forum to handle, the plans are free and I am happy to answer any questions regarding making the chair.

    Regards

    Phil

    I'm interested. Hopefully I will be finished restoring the BS this week and the lathe is next on the list to be cleaned up. Looks like it would definately be great practice for spindle work!!
    Have a nice day - Cheers

    Red face Late to the party?

    Dear Phil,

    If you are still offering the plans, I've sent you my email address by private post.

    I've inherited a platform rocker that looks very much like your plan - but all the upholstery is gone. I'm hoping your instructions will help me replace it so I can use the chair!

    Many thanks.

    Susan

    Chaps
    I wouldn't put an email address on a public forum - the not so upright guys trawl the net for them
    Hence Phil asking you to PM them
    As I'm about to do

    thanks for the offer of the plans Phil - that is very philanthropic of you
    regards
