Why would any mfg of chairs etc. do something like this?
You can see the tenon in the frame of this chair seat, and the two holes/gap/voids – whatever you want to call them.
To repair the damage to the chair I cut off all the broken tenons, drilled them out and replaced them with dowels. To repair the damage from the improperly placed screws I am thinking that I should rout out the damaged portion, extending the “dado” to the left, basically installing a floating tenon. (At the front of the chair it is a true mortise and tenon, fully hidden and at the back I guess you would properly call it a tongue and groove joint?)
All comments are welcome!
