Chair repair

This chair, one of a set of six, had a broken back. It had been repaired before but the glue and the doweling was not adequate. I tackled this repair by using the repair dowels as a sleeve for the replacement dowels and used dowels 3” long. All the old glue had to be scraped off the joints and then the whole lot was glued up and cramped using a Spanish tourniquet and a stiffener to prevent the back from being out of line.
