Chair Restoration

A chair came into the shop in much need of some tender loving care. It had clearly been a favorite chair that had gone through many repairs and reupholstering over the years.  There were so many staples and nails put into the back of the chair (to hold in the various upholsteries) that there wasn't much wood left.  I glued 562 pegs into the back of the chair in order to replace enough wood to allow the customer to have it once more upholstered.  That's right, 562 pegs!!!!  All of the light wood shown was rebuilt by me and some of the curves of the right arm had to be replaced and color matched.
