What's it called????
« on: December 09, 2013, 09:01:36 AM »
I have never seen one of these in person. A friend sent me a pic.

I searched the FF and did not find any talk about it. I may build one of these just for the fun of it.
I will let y'all guess a few times and then I will post a pic of it in use from way back in the 1800-1900's.
These things have been around for ever and are made a little differently depending on the builder but they all look a like. They can be built from any wood.

Do you know what it's called? I'll tell later if ya don't get it.  :)

This wood of choice is PINE. And the reason the older builders chose Pine was because of the flexibility of the wood.

And don't let the curved flat part on the bottoms throw you for a loop. Some are flat.

That a good point Ray. I do think these were used a lot more in the South and you would see a lot of them on Plantations.

I'm trying to figure out the shadows in this sketch.  It's one of those optical de-lusions.

It all started when someone put a board on the backs of two rocking chairs.

As its use became more common purpose built ones were made eliminating the rest of the rocking chairs, they fell out of favour giving way to the more compact design used until the late 1930.

When rural electricity became more common they were replaced by motor driven ones that are used to this day.

Ok I really have no idea what it is, I just made this all up.

That's pretty cool.  Would be a unique backyard bench for sure.  Wonder how long the wood has to be to get a decent "joggle" action going on.   

I'm surprised thejogglefactory seems to paint all theirs.. i would have thought there would be a lot more charm to the piece with exposed grain.

My guess and only my guess is to make them out of Pine for flexibility. Thus painting the Pine to last longer.
