Refinished 80-90 year old rocking chair

Alright so a couple weeks ago, my Dad's birthday came around and me being 15 well I guess you could say I wasn't exactly money bags haha :p And as some of you know when a woodworker is short on cash he looks around him to see what he can make... So I decided to refinish my Dad's 85 year old Rocking chair... which was pretty beat up... so anyways hope you enjoy...

As you can see there was a spindle missing and a support on the right side which I had to duplicate. I also remade all the cross dowels. Oh and sorry about the pictures they aren't the best.
