Have loved this rocker for over 48 years.
Apr 23, 2022
My hubby bought me an Amish-made hickory rocker prior to our first son's birth. That "baby" is now 48, and it was our favorite for rocking 3 more of our babies and many grandchildren. It is still in fine shape. We purchased a child's size Amish rocker 46 years ago; our children and now grandkids are loving it too. Back then these rockers weren't sold by Lehman's or any other stores; we picked out ours from a row of rockers in an Amish farmer's barn in Hartville, Ohio, where my husband was raised. I'd buy again in a heartbeat even at today's prices ... would be worth every penny! Still my favorite piece of furniture.
Nice chair but be careful

The chair is beautiful but the maker did not sand my chair completely so there were sharp areas on the arms of the hickory that would cut you if you rub the arms of the chair or snag your cloths. I had to get a sanding block and go over the chair and make sure the sharp spots were sanded down smooth. Love the chair but for the price I should not have had to finish sanding for the maker. The chair itself is a 5, the maker gets a 3 for lack of effort on the sanding.
Haven't sat in it yet...

Just a note. This comes with square head screws. I don't own a square head screw driver which is going to add to the expense. You would think you would get a proprietary tool but you don't. I will now have to make a trip to a hardware store to buy a specialty screw driver I imagine I will use one time. This should be noted in the description so that it is not a surprise.
Absolutely the Best Chair

I bought one of these chairs about a year ago from Lehman's. I absolutely love it! The chair fits the human body like a dream. It was only a few months later that I ordered my second chair. Everyone wants to sit in them. They are beautifully made & signed by the artist who made it, under the seat. I'll probably be buying more, when I can figure out where to put the new ones. LOL!! Thanks so much. Everything from your shop is top quality!

hickory wood around back of upper oak slates that oak is nailed to has split down center 4 inches long and two other small splits on same piece of wood. otherwise it is a beautiful chair. I will try epoxy to stop split.

I've had one of these Amish rocking chairs in my home for over 40 years. My husband actually bought mine from his Amish friends to surprise me when our daughter was born. They weren't available to the general public back then. I rocked two babies in mine. You won't be sorry to own this and you'll marvel at the craftsmanship and beauty. And Yes, it has nails but NONE ever popped.

My rocker came with my husband when we married as his parents purchased one for each of their children. It's one of my most favorite pieces of furniture. Great for rocking babies and it's not heavy so you can move it easily. I've had two back surgeries and it's my 'go to' chair when I need to be comfortable. We actually had a small one made for our daughter's 1st birthday and had matching pads made to match our furniture. Definitely a family heirloom to cherish. I've been rockin' it for 29 years! ;-)

Purchased this rocker as a Christmas gift for my Granddaughter that was expecting our great granddaughter. She loves it and will cherish it for ever. Love passing on a American made treasure.

I just got one of these rockers, it's gorgeous, but it's only nailed together- I wish it was screwed together. Hoping that the nails won't pop over time. All else looks OK. Thanks, Lehmans!

This rocker is extremely comfortable! And it looks great outside on the porch or inside! Great for rocking little babies to sleep
