In this set of free woodworking plans, learn how to build a Loveseat Glider Rocker based on a very comfortable Adirondack chair design. This glider rocker is very roomy and comfortable for two people, whether you choose to add cushions or sit on the wood directly. The rocking motion is smooth and the wide arm rests are a great place to set a cool drink while you're relaxing.
While this project isn't technically difficult to build, it is time-consuming. Plan on 30-40 hours before you get to the finishing stage, and probably at least 20-30 more for finishing, depending on whether you choose to stain or paint the project. You can build it out of any hardwood or pine. Redwood would be a terrific choice for staining, or poplar if you want to paint the project.
No matter how you choose to finish this glider rocker for two, you'll have a piece of patio furniture that your guests will truly admire!
