Modern rocking chair – Designing your own wooden rocking chair gives you the opportunity to decide on the angle of the back of the chair, its size and how fast it rocks. To help speed up the process, use an existing rocking chair that you like as a basic model.
18 Picture Gallery: How to Design Modern Rocking Chair
Study the dimensions of an existing modern rocking chair that you like. Find out what you do and do not like the chair so you can design a personal version. Design the width and depth of the chair. If you design a rocking chair for a child, give room for the child’s growth. When designing the depth of the chair, keep in mind that the back can take up to 2 inches. The front edge rocking seats should be designed so that a user does not feel a hard angle under her legs.
Determine the span of the zippers. The rails are the lower, bent pieces that make the chair rock. Rails that are too long are a risk of danger, and those who are too short can cause a rocking chair to tip. Good modern rocking chair rails extend 2 inches past the seat and no more than 6 inches past its back. Select the wood. When deciding whether to work on a rocking chair, Woodworker Scott Morrison says that you should pay special attention to the direction of wood fibers to maximize their strength and minimize failing tongues. The seat of the chair’s front and hind legs should follow the curves. The wood at the joinery should be as flawless as possible.
