A friend asked me to fix 2 broken chairs for him. It took me the first leg spindle didn’t turn out right so I did an extra one, I also needed to make all of the cross peices. I was able to use all of the original parts to put one chair back together and use new parts for all but 2 legs on the other. The challenge for me was to DUPLICATE, not really my thing, I like one of a kind stuff. But it was still fun, I mean anytime you get to turn on a lathe is fun right? I used 8/4 hard maple, and some wood glue to hold it all together.
Thanks for looking, all comments are welcome

That is a lot of work. Repair is harder than starting from scratch! Nice job!

Looks like they came out pretty good, well done. I just repaired a 40+ yr old toddlers chair and I probably won’t do that again. I don’t even like building them. Yours came out much better than mine, your friend owes you big time, unless he was cashing in on a favor.
