This balloon back chair had to have the back piece re-fitted and the whole thing needed a polish.
This antique chair was bought to the workshop in a few pieces and needed some love!
Some restoration had already been attempted previously, but an incorrectly placed wedge had stressed the left side of the chair and caused part of the seat to split off. The armrest had also pulled free from the backrest and the spindles on the left side had sheared causing the base of the chair to be a bit wobbly! The finish was also uneven, with glue drips and cracking.
All the various pieces of the chair have been lovingly repaired and put back together. All the joints (including the tops of the spindles) have been cleaned and re-glued and the whole thing got a good clean and re-polish. Good as new… or at least solid for the next generation!
This antique table was brought into the studio needing major repairs.
The detailed carving work needed to be restored and joints re-glued.
All the joints were re-glued and strengthened. The carved sections were repaired and the entire table was polished.
