Rocking Chair / August 16, 2017 / Jodie Gilmore
Rockers are usually made of hardwood, and this makes them really durable and strong. Aside from making the rocking chairs stronger and long-lasting, hardwoods provide aesthetic value to rockers because of their beautiful colors and grain. Hardwoods' properties add flair and beauty to rocking chairs, and this adds to their design value. Adding a hardwood rocking chair carved beautifully and made with intricate designs will surely add spice to an otherwise bland room.
No one really knows how much work goes into making a rocking chair. It may just seem like a regular chair placed on curved wood, but it's more than that. The back of the chair must be slighted just right or the person will tip. The legs of the \"chair\" are much shorter and have to be just the right angle. Finally, the slop in the runners and the placement of the legs has to be just right or the chair won't be stable.
