Rocking Chair Templates


I have two options for template material; Both are CNC cut so they are accurate and precise.

The tall option is 2-1/2″ taller than the short model. At 5′-10″ my husband feels very comfortable in the shorter version, however, my dad stands 6’1′ and felt it was a bit on the short side for him.

The first option is a wooden set of templates which comes at a slightly higher price and slightly higher shipping cost. However, these are ready to go templates you can set on your board and use a router with a flush trim bit, to copy.

The second option is a plastic set of templates which is much cheaper to ship since it’s a lightweight plastic called polystyrene. With these you would set the templates on your board, trace the shape, then cut out using a bandsaw or jigsaw. You could make the templates on any material of your choice.

The plan bundle includes the template materials as well as a set of detailed assembly plans.

    I received my templates in the mail, for some reason I thought the templates were made of 1/16 lexan, my bad. Should have google the name of the template materal.
    The templates will work just fine, I will use them as a transfer template, to make a wooden template like one use on a router table.
    These will be hung up untill I need them again, with the name “April Wilkerson rocking chair” so I can remember where I got the templates from.
    I want to make one from wood & another from compost decking board, the 1 X 6 design will work well for this & the chairs out by the fire pit will never rot. Compost will play the devil on the tool edge, but that should be the only problem. I am very pleased with the templates, Thank you.
