I was not sure what to do
with this old Rocking Chair
when we inherited it.
It was fragile and in desperate
need of repair.
We found Randy, a local
and he went to work
disassembling the chair
and making the repairs.
A couple weeks later,
when the chair was repaired,
we went back to Randy
and choose the color stain
Randy called to say the
chair was done a few days later.
After watching several YouTube videos,
I decided on the material and
pattern that I wanted for the seat.
If the people in the videos could
weave a seat in under 2 hours,
so could I right?
I ordered 2 coils of 1/2" flat reed
and watched more DIY videos
about Herringbone seat weaving.
When the reed arrived,
I set-up my workshop in the basement
and started weaving.
I have never work on a project like this
and was nervous and anxious
to see the outcome.
A few hours later,
I don't know the complete history
of this old chair, only that it spent
it's life at my Grandmas home
in the mountains of
I LOVE IT!
By the way,
Randy mentioned that this chair was used a lot
and someone using the chair leaned to the left
because the rocker on the left side is worn nearly flat.
