a lady was taking her daily walk and she noticed me working in the shop, she asked if I would take a look at a chair leg that was broken. BAM! one chair leg replacement.

Looks like the original to me. I always work with the garage door open (weather permitting), neighbors drop by and sometimes a stranger will stop and ask what I am doing. Got to meet a lot of my block neighbors this way.

My garage usually ends up with 3-4 neighbors every time I open it. Great job!

Your chair leg looks great but I think I’m just as impressed (if not more) with how well you matched the finish. Good job.

Hats off to you and your wife. It really does look like a perfect match.
