A friend of mine contacted me to see if I could help him repair his grandfathers rocking chair. I told him I would be happy to help. These are the pictures he sent.
When I got the chair and assessed the damage I really didn’t know how I wanted to start. If I placed new joinery above the rockers it would make for a week spot. So I asked if I could shorten the good side and bring the taper diameter of the legs down to fit in the rockers. They approved it and off I went.
I do a lot of antique repair and have never shared this with you guys. I do it for friends and the antiques themselves.Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.
