Wooden Chair Repair
Complete and Painted!

My wooden chair repair is not complete until it looks presentable.

On Page 1. I showed you how to repair
the cracked and split seat of this chair.

On this page I will show you how to refurbish it!

The Front and Back Edges Were Not Even.

Despite using every clamp in my collection during the wooden chair repair, I didn't get the front and back to line up evenly.  My priority was to get the top of the seat level.

The front and back edges now had to be sanded even.

Also, I Had to Sand the Worn Seat.

The seat was very worn, so I sanded that smooth, as well.

Next Step Was to Fill
in a Couple of Pocket Holes.

A couple of the pocket holes were right where you would grab the chair to pull it forward when seated at the table.  So, I decided to use some pocket hole plugs to fill them.

The pocket hole plugs are glued in place with wood glue

Once the Wood Glue Was Dry,
It Was Time to Sand!

Glass insets on this door had slipped since the door was installed 33 years earlier.

The orbital sand with 60 grit sandpaper took down the pocket hole plugs to level with bottom of seat very quickly.

Still Some Gaps, Though.

So, I filled the gaps with some wood filler.

Then Sanded Again.

This time I used a hand sander with a 220 grit sand paper to get that corner smooth.

When Painted,
You Can't Tell
The Pocket Hole Plugs are There!

You can't see the plugs, AND you can't feel them under the chair either!

Time for Painting!

Because I had sanded all the way to the bare wood, my first coat of paint was a primer.

The second and third coats were the final color.

I also touched up some of the worn spots on the top and legs of the chair with some oak wood stain.  The objective was just to have them a little less noticeable.

The Wooden Chair Repair is Complete!

The broken chair has been redeemed!  And looks great!  I look forward to family and friends using it around the dining table!
