For a good friend of mine.

This chair had been previously repaired but fell apart.
Required drilling out broken dowels and cleaning glue build up.

Used Gorilla glue an exceptionally strong glue but needs careful application and clamping.
I usually clamp overnight for maximum strength.

Always wonderful to bring life to wonderful things that otherwise would end their days.
And a lucky friend you have.
Best thoughts and a big smile to you,
