This is not just some random curve you know, a properly tuned rocker will rock on long after you’re gone. There’s real math going on right here, with real numbers and equations and such.!
Mathematics plays a major role in furniture design, fabrication and construction. In our modern world, builders use math every day to do their work. Construction workers add, subtract, divide, multiply, and work with fractions. They measure the area, volume, length, and width. There are formulas and calculations for just about every conceivable problem know to man.
When it comes to making rockers rock, there is a proven formula that works!
That’s it, that’s all there is to it. The lower you sit, the smaller the radius. Turns out, when you are seated, your center of gravity is right where you sit. So, the height of the seat up from the floor determines the radius of the rocker.
Here is the actual mathematical formula you can use to calculate the “perfect” rocker radius for any height or type of log furniture.
Attention log furniture makers!!! Log rocking chairs are popular and can be a top seller when advertised as “custom fitted”. As a general rule, all you will need to quickly determine your customers center of gravity (cg) is the length up from the floor (their heel), to the back of the knee, or bend of their knee.
