I need an advice on how to fix these chairs. I think it is a teak and oak wood, but I could be wrong.
There is also a small crack in a wood. Any one knows how to fix it? Anyone wants to adopt a cat? :}

No thanks to the cat. Allergic. And I might suggest that the cracks are not significant enough to warrant repair… might do more damage than good, unless there is something structurally wrong that does not show in the photos.

I’m not good enough to ID wood… but as quick glance, but it does not appear to have the teak grain that I would expect. Nice design though… looks Scandinavian which uses teak.

Nice pics, but where is the crack located? Is it at a stress point? Is the crack in an area that would be highly visible? I’m not an expert on fixing cracks, but the answers to these questions would determine my approach.

Are you giving up your cat because it’s lonely? I have two cats that could keep yours company. As a bonus, one smells of the great outdoors (a smell that some might mistake for skunk).

Another thought: If they were just ordinary chairs, I would attempt to fix them myself. If I really loved the chairs, I would locate a local furniture repair person/shop. I would be vey picky about handing over the cracked chair – i.e. I’d ask lots of questions about how they would fix the chair, and I would want to see examples of thier work.
