    Thought out this Covid-19. I started to expand my experience. On making a branch out of a twin headboard. As I supervised myself how it turned out. The headboard started to peel off its detail from its own surface. How can salvage it now. To continue to enjoy the bench I made for the outside porch?

      Hi Mike,

      Thank you for contacting us. Here is the reply from the experts:

      Great idea. Unfortunately I don’t know what is causing the detail to peel, so I don’t have any suggestions on how to stop it. If the bench is exposed to moisture, and that is causing the peeling, then you might want to remove the old finish and apply a finish such as a clear deck finish that is more conducive to outdoor use.

      Hello Edward,

      Thank you for contacting us. I’m sorry the only rocking chair is the Child’s Shaker rocking chair.
