Shaking chairs started to appear in the late 1700s when somebody ingeniously thought of adding skates or rockers to the bottoms of grown-up furniture, just like a child's rocking cradle or rocking horse.
Is the rocker pitched appropriately? In layperson's terms, does the shaking chair give a smooth or even shaking movement without tipping, even when you are in the lying position? Or does it seem like you are about to turn backwards when you are shaking? Does a single push keep the rocking chair shaking for a few minutes or does it stop after onlya few seconds?
Was the rocking chair constucted utilizing techniques that have been shown to lead to stronger and also much more resilient rocking chairs that can withstand daily usage? Several of these techniques include building and construction without adhesive, interlocking joinery and also the popular Maloof strategy of using seven laminated strips of timber to strengthen each of the long, classy skis that are made use of in his rocking chair layouts.
