This was my Great Grandfathers chair. It is a mission style glider. It was in the house when my Grandfather passed away. My oldest Uncle was to have it. His wifes words were “I DONT WANT THAT OLD SHIT IN MY HOUSE”. I asked my uncle if I could keep it for him, hoping one day to build my own.I disassembled it in the late 80’s, measured every piece and NEVER had the time to build one. In 2002 when I met my partner she asked what that box of things were. I told her it was my old glider chair and that I was not going to assemble it till my aunt passed away. Because (she didn’t know my aunt well) the day I put it together and finish it she will demand to have it back. I am going to out wait her !.The lady is now 89 !When we moved here 2 years ago I assembled it, refinished the wood and made cushions for it. I LOVE IT, the GRANDKIDS love it !.(Maybe her memory has failed !) Doubt it !
