Default Rocky table

Since Mally has gone off in a huff, I shall put this teaser to you.

A four legged table typically rocks when placed on an unlevel floor.

However, with two simple assumptions, you can rectify the
problem by rotating the table through an angle <90 degrees.

How come? and what are the assumptions?
