This rocking chair had been modified at one time in the past but the rockers (the dark rocker shown in the photos) were too short. The front legs were also too long. The end result of the original modification resulted in a rocking chair that tipped over backwards. I shortened the front legs, re-mortised the slots for the rockers on the front legs and fashioned new rockers.
