A quick little project. A friend of mine had this chair sitting out on thier deck and exposed to the elements for the last few years. It was badly weathered, water stained and had a couple of large cracks in the seat where the old joints had seperated. My friend was going to toss it out so I rescued it from the trash heap. Into the shop it went for a few hours of caressing with a scraper and some sand paper. Epoxied and clamped the joints back together. Finished it with a base coat of BLO then a top coat of about 1/4 cup of BLO with a dash of Minwax Red Mahogony stain. The tiny bit of stain showed off the grain much nicer than straight BLO. Now I have a new chair for the shop. The stamp under the seat of the chair shows that it was manufactured in Quebec on April 2, 1957. I hate to see a nice chair go to waste.
