Here are the latest two chairs I have salvaged. Both chairs were very rough and had been exposed to the elements for many years but were basically sound. I wove a Herringbone pattern in the rocker seat from flat reed and gave it a complete refinish in an Early American Minwax stain. The ladder back chair is not as old and had a good White Oak seat. I repaired and hand sanded the chair then cleaned the Oak seat restoring its color. They both got a finish in Tongue oil including the seats. The rocker was finished off with a funiture wax.
