All Items from Troutman Chair Shop-NC



Featured in Southern Living Magazine, Troutman rockers have long been part of southern outdoor tradition.  All rocking chairs are made from solid oak cut in Troutman's own North Carolina sawmill and are painted and stained in a variety of acrylic finishes suitable for covered porch use.  These chairs are built like no other you will find on the Internet - no glue is used in the construction, instead Troutman uses Swelled Joint Construction, a technique borrowed from time tested Shaker design.











The key to Swell Joint Construction is differential moisture content.  Posts are air dried and rungs are kiln dried. The moisture  variance causes rungs to absorb moisture from the posts (and swell) as posts lose moisture to rungs (and shrink).  This makes a much tighter fit than if they had been glued, a fit that actually gets tighter with time.

The tight fit also come from interlocking joinery, by which front and back frames are assembled separately. When the two parts are snapped together, the boring on each frame notches making it near impossible to be pulled apart.  All of our standard Troutman rockers ship assembled and ship two to a box.

Troutman rockers are proudly hand made by American craftsmen in North Carolina, the furniture capital of the world, and have been so since 1924.  Shop-NC has been online offering top quality outdoor furniture since 1998.  If you ever have a problem with your Troutman rocking chair, we're here.
