This guide will walk you through each step of building your own Kiser Black Rocker Recliner with detailed instructions on how to assemble it.
Steps on Building a kiser Black Rocker Recliner
Step 1. Building the Frame
Determine how tall you want your rocker recliner to be
Step 2. Measure and cut two pieces of wood for each side, make them 13″ long with a width that is equal to or slightly less than the thickness of the other piece of wood. Cut one end at an angle so it will form a right triangle shape.
Step 3. Measure and cut two pieces of wood for the front, back, armrests, make them 12″ long with a width that is equal to or slightly less than the thickness of the other piece. Cut one end at an angle so it will form a right triangle shape.
Step 4. Attach all four triangles in pairs (by inserting the angled cut ends into each other) and fasten them together with screws
Step 5. Attach all six pieces of wood (by inserting the right angle cuts into each other). It should form a square.
Step 6. Mark how deep you want your seat from front piece to back piece, then measure that distance in from both sides and mark (so there are two marks). Draw a line from one mark to the other.
Step 7. Take your saw and cut along that line, but stop about halfway through
Step 8. Use this as a template for all four corners of your seat, then measure how deep you want it followed by marking both sides so you have four markers total.
Step 9. Cut out the corners of your seat with a saw and chisel.
Step 10. Put on the hinges so that they are flush to the wood, but not screwed in yet.
Step 11. Place two screws through each hinge into one side piece of your frame (on either end)
Step 12. Screw it into both sides at once from this angle
Step 13. Place the hinges flush to the wood, but not screwed in yet
Step 14. Put two screws through each hinge into one side piece of your frame (on either end)
Step 15. Screw it into both sides at once from this angle.
Consider how deep you want your seat and mark where that is on all four corners securely with a sharpie.
Step 16. Cut the corners of your seat with a saw and chisel, being sure to measure how deep you want it. Place two screws through each hinge into one side piece of your frame (on either end).
Step 17. Screw it into both sides at once from this angle. Make sure that when you tighten these screws, you do not put any pressure on the seat. Measure how many inches in from the edge of your frame that you want to have a gap between your arm and chair.
Step 18. Make two marks – one being where the hinge is screwed into its corresponding side piece (on either end). Place screws through these hinges securely and tighten them. Using your arm, check to see if the gap is where you want it.
When satisfied, use a drill and screws to secure these two pieces together on either side of the chair (on each end).
This will be how long your arms can reach for you as the user to have a comfortable position. Place screws through these hinges securely and tighten them.
How to Care for Home Made kiser Black Rocker Recliner
Tip 1. homemade Kiser black rocker recliner should be wiped down with a damp cloth or vacuum to remove dust
Tip 2. If you notice any tears, splits, or cracks in the fabric of your chair call our customer service team immediately for assistance. We will get back to you as soon as possible and do all we can to replace the chair for you
Tip 3. If the fabric is left untreated, it can become dirty and eventually may tear away from the frame
Tip 4. To protect your investment, we recommend that you purchase a set of upholstery covers/sleeves. These are available at most furniture stores or online catalogs like Amazon. If they don’t have covers in your size, you may be able to cut them down
Tip 5. The fabric should not come into contact with any other surface. This can cause tearing and will also shorten the life span of your chair
Tip 6. If possible, store the recliner upright on a level floor or against a wall so that it does not touch another object and it can dry in an open area
Tip 7. If you are unable to store it upright, the recliner should be stored on its side with a towel or other material under the legs of the chair to protect against any moisture that may get into your carpet or floor. If this is not possible, we recommend storing it outdoors because some sunlight will help to dry it.
Tip 8. When you are ready to use the recliner, brush a thin layer of polyurethane onto any unfinished wood surfaces and wipe clean with a damp cloth before using your chair.
Tip 9. Dealing with spills: if there is an accident on your furniture, please do not panic or get mad because everyone makes mistakes!
