Chippendale Chair Restoration

... loading slideshow ...

These Chippendale Chairs were slightly "wobbly" in places. I had four in total that needed looking at. The repairs ranged from a loose legs and stretcher tenons to a complete joint rebuild. One of them needed a replacement seat making from solid wood.

The chairs were made of Mahogany with the joints having been glued with rabbit hide glue which naturally fails over time.
