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
