No sewing again this week, but today I am working on a chair. I bought a vintage rocker that sits on a base and rocks on springs. It's beautiful but way too low to get out of easily, and I have very short legs.
It's actually laying on its side, I just turned the photo. The seat is about 14" from the floor. I remember my grandfather having a rocker similar to this.
You can see the bottom construction and the rocking springs at the bottom of the photo.
I cut, sanded and stained 2x4s. I will attach these to the bottom of the legs and run 2x2 braces across as well. That will raise it up 4 inches which I hope will be enough. I'm trying to get it finished before Thanksgiving day.
