"Chain Stitch" Childs Rocker

This cute childs rocker had whats called a "Chain Stitch" in the back that had broken a long time ago. Only about half was left. We made a pattern to form new reed pieces and assembled them to the back. Once the dowels on top, bottom, and sides were wrapped with new 1/2 round reed to cover the nails, it is ready for stain and sealer.

What a darling little rocker there! Did you use a jig to set up the chain pattern? Tell me you didn't do that all free-hand and still managed to get them so perfect!

Yes, I made a jig using one of the old pieces, then made new ones with a couple of extras just in case!
