restoration of a very old and in very bad shape Tudor chair that my father had for many years
he loved it and i wanted to fix it for him

at first i taught i would only have to make the missing turned bar and glue up the broken crosstie but when i removed the old seating to replace and fix those two things i realized that the chair was in very bad shape and that it was the seating holding everything together

one of the tenon on the crosspieces and one of the legs were broken and all of the old animal glue was shattering like glass i had to pretty much put it all back together and cleaning all the mortises and tenons to re-glue them together

after all was done i matched the color on the turned back-slat and put a fresh coat of 3/4 varnish without removing the old finish

Great work. Did you do the seat weaving yourself?
