This plan is just the detailed drawing, as it explains. It does not have any step-by-step instructions. It's a big 36x48 piece of paper that I hung up in my shop and referenced constantly while I was engaged in building the rocker. It was an awesome reference, and as it is full size, it made it easy to compare pieces in size by simply holding them up to the plan. The nice thing too is that you can be creative & flexible with shapes and some sizes, lengths of thing. I modified it a bit as I had a hard time turning the back spindles, so I made some rectangular tapered spindles that worked out nicely. If you want to see photos of the one I built, check it out here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BjC82VRA73O. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. Thanks for the drawing!
