NANCY’S ROCKER & FOOTSTOOL
Among woodworkers the dream of making a "Maloof Style" rocking chair can now be a reality. Our 32 page instruction booklet with color photos, two 36” x 48” full-size patterns and a 24" x 36" full size pattern for the Footstool, provides you with all the necessary guidance you will need to build Nancy’s Rocker with the matching Footstool…..! Actually with our plan you get two great designs…If you can trace with carbon paper from the plan to your template material you can build this Rocker & Footstool.....
Our directions will start with the Footstool. You will cut the beveled edges and hand cut the exposed angled dovetails. This is followed with carving the small feet and the assembly of the stretcher and final glue up.
We start construction of the Rocker by building the bending form for the rockers from the full size plan.
There are a group of templates that are required and they are made from ¼” plywood from the full size patterns.
