Start with the Rockers

Make the rockers first
  1. Cut the full-size rocker pattern (A) shown on Drawing 5 on page 7 of the free downloadable plan, on the last page at the end of the plan, to shape leaving about a 1/2" paper margin outside the line.
  2. To form the rockers (A), rip and crosscut two pieces of 1/2"-thick wood to 4x12". (We used maple.) Stick the two pieces together with double-faced tape. Now, spray adhesive to the back side of your paper rocker pattern and adhere it to the top piece. With an awl, mark the centerpoints for the four holes to be drilled.
  3. Using a bandsaw, cut the rockers to shape. (We cut just outside the line and sanded to the line.) Remove the paper pattern and sand the bottom of the rockers on a disc sander as shown in Drawing 1, shown right. Sand carefully to maintain a smooth arc on the rockers. Mount a 1"-diameter drum sander on the drill press, and sand along the top edges of the rockers. Hand-sand the sides and places a drum sander can't reach.
  4. Chuck a 3/8" bit in your drill press, and drill the two end holes. Back the bottom piece with scrap to prevent chip-out. Separate the two rockers and remove the tape.

I PRINTED THE PLANS. THE PICTURES ARE TO SMALL. ALSO UNABLE TO DOWNLOAD USING INTERNET EXPLORER. WHEN PRINTING THE SECOND PAGE HAS JUNK WHY HAVE A SECOND PAGE. A WASTE OF PAPER.
