great looking comfortable chair
Very good. All went well
I originally purchased a fully assembled rocker some 7-8 years ago from a vendor in Key Largo, Florida….may have been an A&L product. The chair was great so I bought a new one. This chair is identical to the original one (which I gave away) but did NOT match the quality in ASSEMBLY. Holes were misaligned the instructions were near worthless. Inn order to make the product “satisfactory “ I had to rework the assembly. I also didn’t realize that you offered 2 sizes. I ordered the smaller size. No BUENO. Recommend you rework your assembly instructions utilizing illustrations. Also use or offer Stainless fasteners for use in Florida as the drywall screws you use will rust pretty quickly in coastal exterior usage.
Arrived sooner than expected, which is rare these days. Well packaged and most of the materials are recyclable which is a plus. No box full of styrofoam like most assemble yourself furniture. Directions are clear, concise, and easy to follow. I just wish the pilot holes were larger instead of the size of finishing nails. I was reluctant to use a drill to open them up so my hands are aching today. All in all I’m very happy with the quality of both rockers. Just wish assembly was easier. Hickory is a very hard wood!
Beautiful wood and craftmanship!And it's easy to put together. However, the rocker wasn't very tall, so it's not the easiest to get in and out of unless your short or your a child.😔

Have a great week
We would love to have one of the hickory twig rocker in our cabin in northern Minnesota. Even though it is year-round and we go there during all four seasons, sometimes during the winter the air can be dry in the cabin. Would this be harmful in anyway to this type of chair? Thank you, Laura

Can this chair be kept outdoors?
This chair is intended to be used indoors or a ccovered porch. You do not want this cchair to be exposed to the weather
To refinish a bentwood chair - first, clean the chair and remove all ripped caning from the seat without damaging the frame’s wood. The next step is to strip the old varnish and paint or stain the wood chair frame. Now, scrape off the old finish by using a knife edge. If there are remaining areas with the old finish, re-apply the stripper. Lightly hand-sand the wood with fine-grade sandpaper and stain the rocker all over.
Our bentwood chairs can hold up to 250 lbs.
To clean a bentwood rocker, use a foam brush to paint a layer of wood cleaner onto the entire chair and let it sit for 15 minutes, followed by good scrubbing before rinsing the cleaner off with water.
