My wooden chair repair is not complete until it looks presentable.
On this page I will show you how to refurbish it!
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.
The seat was very worn, so I sanded that smooth, as well.
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
The orbital sand with 60 grit sandpaper took down the pocket hole plugs to level with bottom of seat very quickly.
So, I filled the gaps with some wood filler.
This time I used a hand sander with a 220 grit sand paper to get that corner smooth.
You can't see the plugs, AND you can't feel them under the chair either!
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 broken chair has been redeemed! And looks great! I look forward to family and friends using it around the dining table!
