This Adirondack Rocking Chair Homemade Homesteading DIY Project is an excellent way to add some rustic charm to any home.
The rocking chair is a staple of the home, especially with a senior citizen owning that chair. The traditional rocking motion standing in the living room tend to be the same size, but this one is a little different. The total dimensions are 34″W x 37″D x 45 1/2″H and the seat is 15 inches off the ground. The chair can move with the average person’s feet on the ground still. With this chair, the curves on the bottom are three inches longer to extend the rocking motion and make it slow and comfortable.
This rocker has 21-inch seat slats, two inches wider than regular chairs. The rocker also has a curved seat slack to match the curves of the back slats, removing the gap between the back slats and the back seat slats. The arms are 8 inches wide and can hold a plate or magazine, allowing you to comfortably rest the arms. The construction of this chair can be altered a bit based on the type of wood you are using and the amount of nails and screws you have. The rockers taper in at the back and centers the legs on those wider rockers for a more balanced feel to it.
Adirondack refers to the mountainous range in New York and the style the chair is built in. This is a fun DIY project for those who like to make homemade furniture and don’t mind the labor and love put into each corner of the chair.
