It has been a good while that I have posted anything. Here is an old,old rocking chair that a lady at tha place that I work ask if I could do anything with it. I told her that I would have a try, but when she brought it to I thought, Oh boy, I just don’t know. I did not say anything but that I would try. I don’t know how old it is but the internal frame is attached with old cut-nails, and the padding was straw. I had to make a piece or two that was missing. It had one of the most unusual rocking mechanisms that I have ever seen. It had been out on her brothers back porch in the weather for some time. She told me that it was her Grandmothers rocker. Here are some before and after pictures. She said that she would get someone to do the upholstering. She seemed to be very pleased with the results.
