We all had to bring in a piece of broken furniture to repair.I found a windsor chair and replaced a leg,a back rung, and a stretcher with poplar.(white pieces in picture) I spent a while hand turning the leg and stretcher(perfectly by most standards), and the back rung was eyeballed and bandsawn then rounded over on the router table(my eyeballing without measuring led to it not matching perfectly).The tenons on the leg and stretcher were done on the lathe,and the back rung was tenoned by hand with a horn along its length to sit in the chair without me taking it apart.Although the tenons fit nice and tight in their mortises,I did not want to wait for glue to dry so I simply secured them with screws and no glue.I got marks deducted for using “simple joinery”.My tenons were perfect I say!I used a ruler and calipers and markings and everything! :P

looks likes it came out good. I have fixed a few of those and it isn’t all that fun.
