Windsor chair repair

April 2, 2011

One leg full of woodworm and the top joint completely gone

I had to turnĀ  a new leg I used Beech

Shaping the end with my pocket knife to make it fit perfectly

Clean up the joints from old glue parts and put it back together I used clamps and a strap-band to keep it in the right position while clamping, I forgot to take a photo at this point

And glued the new leg in place

I used crushed Walnut husks to make the dye and bees wax

Happy chair!
