If you stop to think about it, there likely isn’t a more abused piece of furniture than a chair. The constant moving and shifting of hundreds of pounds on it takes a toll. That’s why chairs need to be reglued after some time. It could be 5 years, it could be 30 years, but eventually all chairs will get loose joints… and that creates a risk.

I repair a lot of loose and broken chairs, and what I’ve learned over the years is a loose chair will become a broken chair. Here’s a video that shows why that is and how to prevent breaking a chair. I hope you find it useful.
