When my mother-in-law came to stay with us for two months, we wanted to give her something special. She’s in her early seventies and is such a voracious reader. She loves staying outdoors, surrounded by greenery. So we thought, why not combine the two?

Making a garden rocking chair is a wonderful project to take on especially if you have woodworking skills.

My husband decided to give her her own spot in the garden. She deserves a place where she can relax and immerse herself in one of her many books. Searching for something that would be a not-so-complicated yet worthwhile build, my husband found a garden rocking chair project. Going over the instructions and seeing how the finished product would look like, we knew it was exactly what we wanted.

My mother-in-law absolutely loved it. It’s comfortable to sit on she’d be in it for the most part of the day. If you’re looking for a great project that’s totally worth your while, this garden rocking chair is highly recommended.
