This is an example of what I find truly exciting about old furniture. The rocker belonged to a friend’s grandfather. She said she can remember him rocking her in it when she was very young. Over the years the rocker got moved to the basement and it stayed there for many years. A couple of years ago she was cleaning out the basement and found the rocker. She considered tossing it to the curb but simply could not give up that memory so she took it home. I took one look at the rocker and went “WOW” what a nice chair. The rest is history. Just like older people, older furniture has its own story. Once you look beneath the surface it is amazing what you will find.
-- In the end it is more about the memories we make than the pieces we build.
