I have such a simple problem, I am blocking out my scene and I am just using simple boxes to model a chair. I want the rest of the chair to rotated but I am unable to rotate it along it's normal orientation.

enter image description here

Note: I did rotate the bottom part of the chair and I have duplicated the rest from it. I have also applied Location, Rotation & scaling to the object.

Thank you, W

If i understood the question you want to rotate the rest back to rotate.

Select the back rest.

In edit mode select the edge and Press Shift+S Cursor to selected.

Change the Pivot point to 3D Cursor

In object mode rotate now.
