Wooden Rocking Chairs
For Your Front PorchWooden rocking chairs are soothing and nurturing. Dave is an avid rocker and I cannot remember a time when we didn't have at least one rocking chair.
I remember buying him a rocking chair at Woolworth department store the first Christmas we were married.
Just as you would have a comfortable rocker in your living room or baby's nursery, your porch deserves several nice rockers, too. Add some rocking chair cushions to keep your backside happy.
A wood rocking chair can last a long time and may become an heirloom for generations to come.
Did you know that come in many types of woods? Like Brazilian cherry, red cedar, walnut, oaks, mahogany, maple, wicker, and teak.
They range of styles is wide, too: Windsor, slat back, Adirondack, Dixie, Kennedy, and Sutton. Perhaps the most famous of all is the Boston rocker.
The chair back and arm rests were often done in gold paint and are sought after by collectors.

A Short History Lesson About Wood RockersThe wooden rocking chair is an American invention although no one knows exactly who invented it.
Many believe it to be Benjamin Franklin; however, documentation suggests that furniture maker William Savery built it at least as early as 1774.
Early wooden rockers were known as carpet cutters because of the damage done to carpets by repeated rocking in the same location.
