Gorilla glue challenge entry
Made the chairs about 3 years ago.
Lumber is Tennessee swamp cyprus. It came from Whiteville saw mill located on highway 64 about 70 miles east of Memphis in the south part of the state. Highly figured cyprus. With lots of character.
Soon after making the chairs a seat slat broke near a particular knarly swirly grain pattern. Well it stayed like that for years, not really affecting the way the chair “sat”.
Gorilla glue and screws, with quartersawn white oak straps are my repair methods.
Didn’t want to replace the board, because of the beautiful silver and green patina the wood is getting.
After and before pictures included.
