I am making a rocking chair and I’m not using any plans. Just looked at some pictures to go along with
What I already had in my head. I think I’ve got the measurements where I need them. I been kinda measuring me and
My wife and coming up with something in between. The only thing I been scratching my head on is the seat height. I
Have read that 14 1/2 is a good medium size but seems shy to me. When you sit in the rocker you would want it to sit back a little naturally. Would 14 or 15 be the measurement from rocker to top of seat at front of chair and then let the radius of the rockers establish the back legs. I have noticed that the back legs are shorter on a lot of the rockers I see. I know that a good rule for rocker radius is the seat height times pi. I read this online. Or 42 inches I’ve seen is a good standard for 14 or 15 inch seat height. I maybe making this too complicated. I just hate to mess up on the last thing. Haha that wouldn’t be na fun. Just thought I might try and get some feedback from the pros.
