I enjoyed the video. In another 45 seconds, I'm sure he could adjust the
center of gravity with a new rocking base if he wishes to. It's not like
he needs to contract the job out! : )
I'd like to have a foot-operated latheas well.

It's not important that the center of gravity is correct, since, once someo
ne sits, they and the chair are one unit and leaning to one side would alte
r the unit's center of gravity.
What's important is the rockers are toed in (back), or toed out (front), at
the same angle to the mid-line and the leg lengths maintains the rockers i
n the same plane (of action/motion), otherwise the chair would likely creep
across the floor, as one rocks. It doesn't take much misalignment for a r
ocker to creep.
I would think his rocker doesn't creep. No doubt, that's not the first roc
ker he's built.
Those things are important, but I'm not talking about rocker creep or
side-to-side balance. The point I was trying to make is that his chair is
trying to lean forward and dump him out, and you can see that before he even
sits in it. On a well-balanced rocker you should be able to take your feet off
the floor and not have the chair roll forward.
