Nice chair, Mike!

The reason why I think I need to replace the rockers is because they are really quite out of shape and quite badly worn. See the photos below.

So this morning I sanded all the pieces except the rockers with 120 grit and it’s come up quite nicely. I went straight to 120 because I don’t want to lose the scratches, dents, gouges, etc. All the stuff that is in it’s history and gives it character. Should I go any higher than this before staining?

I also found a stamp. Simply an ‘F’ on the end of one of the arms. Could this be the makers mark?
