Original Rocker Style
Originally the Porch Rocker was a modification of the adirondack chair which made its debut in the early 1900's. Many of the
same features can be found in the rocker such as a high back,
inclined seat and enough room for an added blanket or pillow. This chair gives you all the
perks as the original with the added bonus of rocking.
Rockers for the great outdoors should be durable
enough to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions and incect attack. A sturdy cedar rocker is perfect for outdoor
placement. Western Red Cedar fibers contain oils that act as natural preservatives to help the wood resist rot and decay making it exellent furniture material for moist or humid climates. These properties also make Cedar a very popular material for hot tub and sauna areas.
Treating Outdoor Rockers
Choosing to stain or seal for your outdoor rocker is a personal decision to each owner. If you prefer to have
your rocker looking new for years to come, a semi-transparent stain with ultra violet inhibitor will keep the suns rays from bleaching the fresh cedar look. For gentle and natural
aging, leave your rocker unfinished and over a couple of years you will slowly see the
transformation to seasoned silvery grey appearance.
