This was a friends chair I had to try to repair. He said just add a leg / “stick” to get a leg back on.
So I look at the broken leg and started with a block of wood. A little thicker piece of wood then the old leg to help with it not get broken again. Then I start pulling about hundred staples out and peeling the “opening” of where the leg was before. Laired by laired I found where & how the leg sat before. Then time to put it back together and re-staple everything.

Looks like it works. I usually find just replacing the part is best. Trying to salvage is usually won’t work long term.

My favorite, yea right, kind of furniture repair is when the main cross member under the seats snaps from…. Overweight person, kids jumping on the furniture, ect. I usually fix that situation with a few joist hangers and a new cross member that is heavier than the original.
