In my furniture repair business, people frequently ask if broken wood can be fixed. In many cases it can. In this video I show three examples of how to repair broken wood. I hope you find it helpful.

Nice job, I always learn something from your videos.

As I watched you split the door I was wondering have you ever had to return an item to a customer in either the same condition (or heaven forbid) in worse condition?

All those repairs made sense to me, well done. most of the time when customers what me to repair items it turns out to be things like a chair leg broken across the grain or steam bent bows on Windsor chairs or bentwood rockers, none are easy fixes without making new parts that most the time the cost of the repair exceeds the value of the item so be repaired .
Your videos are always clear and detailed and explained in a logical way.

Have your say...
