rocking chairYou may have noticed that some rocking chairs will “walk” forward or move from side to side when you rock in them. This happens when one rocker is smaller or more worn than the other.

The best way to stop a rocking chair from moving across the floor is to turn the chair over and plane the bottom of the larger rocker to match the size of the smaller one. A temporary solution to the walking problem is to fasten one screw eye to the back of the chair’s bottom rung and another to the baseboard directly behind the rocker. Then tie a piece of stout cord between the eyes to keep the chair from moving forward.
