Double Porch Rocker
With its solid construction and elegant design, this rocker is sure to be the most relaxing project you have ever built.
With this classic-style rocker, you can spend time relaxing on your porch, deck, or patio. It has ample space for one person to stretch out while reading a good book. But it’s just the right size to cozy up to your significant other, kids, grandkids, or the family dog. We spent a lot of time getting the shape of the rockers just right for easy, no-effort rocking. The seat slats are curved for comfort. We’ll show you how to make them using a pattern to lay out the shape before cutting them on a band saw using a jig. Also, there’s something unique about the way the seat slats are attached to the rails. Instead of screws, we used slotted dowels secured with thin wedges. This provides a long-lasting connection that will stay strong for years to come.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
