Another Sad and Lonley Rocking Chair Looking for a Baby to Be Rocked
I found another sad and lonely rocking chair at my favorite hang out Good will . I will be 60 soo and I remember my Mom telling me that back in the day Dr. Spock , not the Star trek character to let the baby cry awhile. Well when I cam along she said to heck with that " I'm gonna rock and snuggle my baby girl" So I always had space for a rocking chair when my kids were babies. And when my grandbaby was born I think I had a rocking chair in every room. So hopefully this little beauty will find a good home.
It was hard to see the beautiful wood that was under all the grimey finish
I'm pretty sure this burled walnut under the goop
Someone replace the cane seat with this pressboard piece . It was pretty but not finished.
I used denatured alcohol and scrubbed her down. Then I used my Dremel with the wire brush to clean out all the small grooves.
My flash was a little too bright but here it is cleaned up with a clear coat
Here is the seat with a clear coat finish.
