    You Should Joggle on a Joggling Board





    Or at least try drawing it.
    Inspecting mirrors is a job I could easily see myself doing.

    Interesting. Sat on one of those a few years ago, on the verandah of a restored Colonial House in Charleston, SC.

    I wish I had a verandah on which to put one.

    Excellent. Now you need to make it "Charleston Green." Mine was but Charleston Green is nearly black so I lightened it up.

    Those feet were made both ways. The ones that are for sale here have the rockered bottoms and that's the way the drawing was done that I received from a reader of the blog. The uprights can't go too far because of the 1" dowels and besides, if you sit in the middle, it sags down so the uprights lean in toward each other.

    An excerpt from the Wiki article: "The end pieces, which are often shaped similar to a rocking chair to facilitate rocking side to side, hold the main board at sitting height."

    Yeah, he harassed me for not making mine "Charleston Green", but I can still support him about the rockers.
