If you recall, a number of weeks in the past, I wrote concerning the surprising restore job I carried out on one among our newly purchased strong mahogany chairs (learn components one and two right here). What I didn’t count on is that I must revisit one among our misfortunate chairs on such quick discover – but once more.
This time it was the crescent rail that gave up. I seen that the rail and some of the intersecting bamboo-looking burs beneath it have been unfastened, and upon inspecting it, I noticed that one of many joints between the highest of the again leg and the rail had damaged off whereas the opposite was wobbling.
At first, I made a decision to pour CA glue into the seams, clamp them for a couple of minutes and name it a day. But then the Jiminy Cricket in me insisted I take this job extra significantly, open the joint and repair it correctly.
After slowly eradicating the rail and pulling out the unfastened bars and the brads that secured them, I found that the maker had made a awful joinery choice.
