All of the chairs below were brought to us in many pieces and were considered JUNK. With careful reconstruction and fabrication of some missing parts, the chairs were restored, much to the delight of the owners.
|This chair, said to be about 200 years old, arrived with two broken splats and several broken stretchers. The seat has three large splits that we glued to prevent further damage, without affecting the beautiful natural grain in the seat.|
|This family heirloom arrived in a box with broken arms, spindles, and the seat in three pieces.|
|This rocker required stripping, disassembly and tightening of all the joints, refinishing with linseed oil and upholstery for the seat and back.|
|A broken rear leg at the rocker joint and stretcher replacement were the only repairs needed before applying a linseed oil finish and several coats of bees wax. A fiber seat with brass tacks is all that was needed for many years of porch rocking.|
