I have a Lazyboy rocker-recliner that’s almost 30 years old and as much as I hate to admit, it’s beyond shot. After being moved from house to house and state to state all these years the wood rockers are so worn that it actually takes an effort to make it rock and the swivel is pretty much bound up. So it’s time to send it to that great big comfortable chair heaven and get a replacement.
So now my question is….
I see posts all day long from folks who get wood by tearing apart pallets and finding old kitchen hutches and entertainment centers at the dumpsters. I’ve done a bit of searching and found one or two who have torn apart a box spring and one who cut up an old couch he found.
We are moving in about 10 days and my shop is pretty well packed up so I cant start building anything much till after we move and I get a new shop built. But I still have a few basic things I can get at like a hammer and crowbar. This is a rather large chair, and it has lasted so long that I’m sure it’s not all pine and pressed-wood. It’s GOT to be mostly hardwoods under all that upholstery. So is there going to be any pieces of wood large enough in it to actually USE? Or will I be wasting my time to even bother?
So has anybody opened up a Lazyboy and anything worth using?
