We offer complete repair of your furniture. If you have a dining chair that is severely broken, we can repair and save that matching chair for your dining set.
An old rocker, for example, will be carefully taken apart to access the joints. Only then can the joint be scraped clean and made ready for the application of carpenter’s yellow glue and clamping. Yellow carpenter’s glue (aliphatic-resin) is the only type of glue that is suitable for the joining of raw wood to raw wood. (There are new urethane glues that are used for some applications, however, they are "foaming" glues and are difficult to keep only in the joint area.) Fine antiques and collectibles should be restored with the classic "hide" glue (urea-formaldehyde) if that is what was originally used on the antique.
