Overview

As sturdy and well-proportioned as its full-size cousins, this child's rocking chair is perfect for reading, watching a movie or rocking a favorite doll to sleep. The kit includes hand-selected oak, cut to size as shown, along with dowels and a plan to show you how to put it all together. Designed with safety in mind, the rocking chair features rounded edges and a limited rocking motion that makes it difficult to tip. All major operations are completed, leaving only basic tasks such as sanding, fastening and finishing to be done—an ideal project for entry-level woodworkers. Rocking chair measures 14-3/4"W x 22"L x 25"H. Seat sits 11" off the floor. Made from hand-selected oak. Lumber has been ripped, planed and dimensioned. Some minor trimming may still be required. To build, simply assemble using dowels and glue, sand and apply your finish of choice. All operations can be completed with normal everyday hand tools and limited woodworking knowledge. Power tools are not needed, but items such as a powered hand sander, drill or brad gun would be useful. Fasteners, glue, and other hardware are not included.

Not Bad

Brent Posted December 8, 2013
Came as described with decent wood selection but legs were broken and needed repair using either pocket screws or biscuits. Sanding had to be done using power equipment many beginners don't have. A beginner may need assistance in getting everything together and completed.

Requires more work than it should

I am disappointed with this "kit". The parts are not well cut. The seat back was cut too narrow to match the back or bottom support so both had to be cut narrower to fit properly. Tool marks were left on nearly all the cut edges and I had to use both a belt sander and random orbital sander to finally get it smooth. The edges also have to be rounded with a router to get a good soft edge. Worst problem was that the front of the chair legs broke off on both sides and I had to repair using a wood scab on the inside where it is out of view. There either needs to be a metal brace included or the wood portion should be cut thicker to provide more strength.

not good

I was disappointed with the kit. The oak was insufficiently dried and as a result a split opened in one chair side and one rocker after assembly. The other chair side broke in half before assembly. The source board for that side was a little punky around the break as though it had been sawn from a wind shaken log. Parts did not match instructions. At the time I ordered the kit catalog showed the chair with spindles at the arms. I got dowels as your current catalog shows. Big aesthetic difference. Supplier does not have good quality control.
