repairing broken chairs

I have at least eight chairs that are in need of repair. It seems that the legs came out of the holes and are very unsteady. I hate to throw them away, can you help?

You can make the tenons larger by gluing some veneer or cardboard of the sort that cereal boxes are made from around them. You may need to sand them down or add to them to make them fit snug. That way, you can glue the tenons back into place.

Hope this helps.

i have found that applying luncheon meat to each individual foot will prevent any unwanted scratching to your flooring

I use shavings from a hand plane to build the diameter of round tenons back up. For any repair to work you need to remove all the old glue on both sides of the joint.

also i have found that shavings from a one eyed hairy backed shek will also help as for glue i have found that pritt stick is a great substitute for many of the more expensive adhesives

Pritt glue stick is a water-soluble, temporary adhesive for paper and paper products. It works well for adhering sheets of paper together temporarily.

Hope this helps.
