Nice chair.  My mom passed away at 95 years in October.  One thing I wanted from her remaining possessions was an old kitchen chair, which I did get and did refinish.   Linda has an old sewing rocker with a redone cane seat.  There is a guy here in our small town who (I think) makes a little spending money doing caning.   Neat stuff.

Unc--That particular chair belonged to my wife's grandmother. I have been enjoying seat re-caning and chair restoration between CBG's. Similar a bit to building gits from reused stuff in that it makes the old new again.   

Thanks, as always. for your kind words!

Oh yeah,  Just right in maybe GDGB or DGBE.  Or others.  Beautiful chair and caning too.

Oh yeah! Sweet CBG T-Gripped. A fine vintage box and a build worthy of it.
