I have a child’s maple rocker that was flooded and consequently has considerable joint failure and some minor warping. The worst of it is in the seat where all but one of the joints has failed:

This chair is not an antique. I was factory made probably in the late 60’s by the Nichols Co. in Gardener, Mass. I’m not sure what kind of glue was used, but it must have been water soluble. The next picture shows the edge of one piece:

Because of the T&G and the shape of the pieces, I cannot easily true up the edges for a better fit. I’m thinking of cleaning up the old glue and then re-gluing with either epoxy or plastic resin and let the squeeze out fill the remaining gaps. My only concern is that I have considerable pressure on the clamps forcing the pieces together as you see in the picture. Am I likely to squeeze out the glue and end up with dry joints? Also, I’m afraid that they may pop apart later.

I should have taken another picture. With just the clamp on the front edge, the joints were open about 1/32” to 1/8” at the back edge.

Your thoughts?

Ya why ? did you think we wouldn’t notice.
If you have the skills make a new seat if you are far from that then glue and clamp the crap out it.
What else is there?

A Coincidence?

The difference is that ”bilyo” (the other one) has 161 Posts, has been on here for 1059 Days, is from Mobile Alabama and has a few pictures of the chair on his Post.

This one “joseph21” has 1 Post (this one) and has only been on here for 12 hours as of 9:50 P.M.

EDIT Okay! Same Guy! BOTH Posts have the Identical Lead Ins “I have a child’s maple rocker that was flooded and consequently has considerable joint failure and some minor warping. The worst of it is in the seat where all but one of the joints has failed.”

WHY???

EDIT: #2 It’s Posted in 2 different Forums. Maybe that’s why?

I have no idea how that happened. Certainly not intentional. Very strange. I do not have an account as “joseph21”
