Rocker Repair

Here's my approach to this rocking chair repair. First step: re-establish the shape of the damaged rocker. I did this using a band clamp, a piece of MDF (and clamps) and a few "sticks" wedged into the chair framing. This setup allows me to re-establish this shape as I perform the various processes involved. The slight flat spot in the rocker seems to be a previously existing condition.
