This is what happens to a 1920’s chair when it is attacked by a rambunctious pug and is thrown across the room…
- Dry fit the parts to make sure I had all the pieces. With some painter’s tape, this only took an hour
- Using Titebond-III, each piece was glued, clamped and allowed to cure for a couple hours…one at a time
- The wood was brittle and dry so I decided to “flood” the end-grain of the parts with “hot” CA glue
- The dried glue was scraped off and the parts inspected. Any high spots were sanded and feathered into the adjoining parts
- Using a cotton swab and some alcohol based stain, the areas where the original finish was removed were blended to match
- 6 light coats of pre-catalyzed lacquer were sprayed and immediately cured with a hair-dryer (light sanding in between coats)
- A couple coats of furniture wax were applied for added protection.
