Amanda’s Heritage Rocker Box

My daughter Amanda was getting married, so I pulled a rocking chair—given to my great-grandmother when she was married in 1865—from a corner in the garage. Patched and repaired many times, it had reached the end of its useful life in a flood. The beech wood seat made a fine box set on feet from the rockers, still flecked with blue paint. I etched a line drawing of the chair on the lid and finished with a time line tracing the family links from the past of my ancestor to my daughter’s future.
