Poor little chair!
Click the jump to see the transformation!
First I knocked apart and cleaned every joint. Then sanded down each piece. Next, installed all new pegs and glued and assembled all the joints . Finally the chair received two coats of a finish that consists of one part varnish, one part linseed oil, and one part turpentine. Once it dried (about a day per coat) I tested it by the time honored method of testing chairs......I leaned back on two legs and bounced and twisted a bit- not a creak!
All ready to go!!
