Our Projects - Child's walnut rush bottom rocking chair

This is a small child's rocker in solid walnut with a rush bottom seat.  The finish is ruined and the client wants a new polyurethane (ugh) finish.  The original seat was in good condition and preserved.

The chair as received.  Solid walnut with lacquer finish perhaps 50 years old.

Here we begin wrapping the rush work by covering the corners tightly with painter's blue tape.

The rush work has been completed covered to protect it from stripping fluid, stain and finish.

The finish has now been removed and the surface of the chair steel wooled and than lightly sanded.

This image shows the rocker stained with a light walnut aniline dye and a sealer coat of urethane.

Richard restored an early 20th century pembroke table that had been in our basement for 20+ years. The table was in poor condition but Richard has restored it to being a beautiful piece of furniture. We are extremely pleased with the restoration and highly recommend Wooden Restorations. We plan to have additional furniture restored. Richard is extremely talented and knowledgable and very pleasant to work with.
