Rocking on the porch in the summer is my idea of a great time. Throw in a cold beverage, and it’s perfection. Although most outdoor rocking chairs are made of aluminum nowadays, if you want that authentic rocking experience, wood is the right material. If the chair is collapsible, all the better, as it can be put away during the winter months, or when it is raining if your deck or porch isn’t covered.

Of course the fact that a chair is made of wood will make it heavier than one made of plastic or aluminum.
