On our way back from the rafting trip by Delaware, we stopped by at the antique shop on the way as usual. Saw the chair and bought it for $15 bucks. Later when I decided to work on it, I found a stamp underneath and did some research. Could be over 100 years old.
After applying the stain I was amazed at the contrasty pattern that formed due to a very old dense wood. I used a simple reinforced burlap to cover the new seat veneer. "Before"
A photographer friend Katrina Tang used my chair in her photo-shoot.
