Hi all, hope you are all happy woodworkers. The weather is getting colder, and the leaves are falling. My stomach is aching for some Turkey…. Today’s post is of a Chair leg I was hired to repair for a client..This was a pretty basic repair. The designer of this chair was well, #$%$%. The chair leg is made up of two pieces. The portion of the leg that broke was a miter glue joint. No dowels, just face glued. Well the pressure of the person on the chair creates a wedging affect on the joint, and well it was its time to let go… Here come’s along FREY WOODWORKING INC. to fix the problem… I decided to use a biscuit and my favorite wood glue (it’s a secret, Titebond,, LOL…) to get the task done… Came out great. Heres a picture video I made to show my steps to repair the leg. Hope you all enjoy. Let me know what you think.

Thanks, Michael Frey

That was a great way to fix that leg. Should last for many years to come.

Thanks, I hope it will. The design of this chair is pretty bad.. Wanted to use dowels, but there was not enough meat on the joint to do so. Thanks for the kind words.

Take Care, Michael Frey
