Remember this bad boy? It appeared on my feed late last year and I asked ‘what would you do?’.... well I at last got the chance and inspiration to address the broken leg yesterday. I decided to keep the leg, I drilled a hole in each section of the leg and added a dowel and wood glue. Also taking inspiration from the Japanese art of ‘Kintsugi’ meaning ‘golden repair’ or ‘golden joinery’ (centuries old Japanese art of fixing pottery with powered gold, silver or platinum) it will be a feature - a golden seam if you will, adding to this two tone grey hall table which already had gold accents. 🤩 win win (hopefully!) #sidetable#halltable#furniturerepair#kintsugi#woodenfurniture#upcycledfurniture
A lot of my shop time lately has been for sanding which makes for boring content, but I don’t want the instagram algorithm to totally forget about me. While this video is sanding it shows how I fixed some gaps I had in the half-laps using some wood filler. #covenantumcaltar#woodfiller#sanding
Both are stripped of the material and decorative upholstery nails. Soon will begin some Careful hand sanding and refinishing. I was given the option to use some fabric that I believe will fit the style and age.

Hey, uhhh... Does anybody know anything about recliners or La-Z-Boy in particular?
I sat in my recliner this morning and something snapped, and it was loud! I don't see anything broken from underneath but I'm so freaked out, this chair is almost as old as me and I'm trying really really hard to keep it in near mint condition. This chair came from my grandparents house and it means a lot to me. If anybody can help me figure out what broke and how to fix it I'd really appreciate it!
Donated things I was tired of having in bags in my small space. The young lady at the thrift store noticed I was checking out these chairs. Said they were FREE! YES, I realize I have countless projects that never got started. I'm a sucker for great furniture. Apparently these are about 200 years old

As most furniture repair-people know, the “bow back” crest rail of a Windsor style chair is no walk-in-the-park to replace. Often the replacement takes time and a technique that, although manageable, is not the most prudent. The replacement of such a piece requires a process that is not always convenient for both repair-person and client. In such cases, we lean on our woodworking skills to facilitate a proper and long-lasting repair.
We provide a more in depth process over on our blog including photos and direction by Jake. Check it out via the link in our bio.

Not as bad as first thought so far although had to take all the veneer off this top. Quite a lot of woodworm as well so cleaned it all down and sprayed it with treatment. .
