I do a lot of chair repairs, so I thought I would share some knowledge from my experience on how to take apart and glue up a wobbly chair properly https://youtu.be/dKqIVWTpIiA

Good video. I like your method of labeling for scrap. I can tell what species it is from looking at the end, but adding the length is a huge timesaver.

BTW, if you do a lot of repairs like that involving drilling for dowels, drilling out dowels, etc, nothing beats the old Stanley No. 59 dowel jig. You can find one on eBay for just a few bucks, just make sure it’s a complete kit.
