Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Takedown
Begin by taking the chair apart, remember to note where things went... or take a picture as a reference.
Step 2: Gluing and Sanding
Glue the broken seat together and let dry.. Sand the pieces down
Step 3: Coating and Some Assembly
Once sanded to desired smoothness, apply the linseed oil and reassemble some of the pieces
Step 4: Finish Assembly and Gluing
Finish assembling the pieces gluing them in place. *note I put the rockers on backwards so she could put it closer to the wall.. it has no affect on the performance of the rocker...*
Step 5: Something Special
I added something special for mom to kinda personalize it. I used carbon paper to trace the design on to the piece, then I used the Dremel tool to cut it out. I then painted it black and sanded it down to look like it was worn and has been there for some time. Then I reassembled the top piece no glue just wedged on.. after writing happy mothers day on the back..
Step 6: Finished
