Fixing loose chair joints

10-12-2019 11:07 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

I thought I’d share some knowledge on how to repair chairs properly. I’ve seen so many failed repairs, that I hope this helps people learn do fix chairs the right way. I’ve seen hot glue, screws, nails, and glue applied to the lip of joints – none of these work. I dedicated 20 minutes to show how to do this the right way. I include tips on glue, cleaning up joinery, clamping, and disassembly. I hope you find this educational. Scott

Desk Chairs #7: All Done - Except for Finishing

01-15-2018 02:37 PM by EarlS | 7 comments »
