There are a number of furniture pieces that have come through my workshop that shouldn’t have broken. This pair of chairs are examples of that. They’re made from Acacia wood. This is part of a trend I’m seeing in my furniture repair shop recently as I repair imported furniture.
I show how to repair one of these chairs, while the other one with a broken arm is shown step-by-step on Instagram – see https://www.instagram.com/wooden_it_be_nice_canada/
Broken wood that is glued properly, and "properly" being a the key word, is stronger on the glue joint than the wood itself. You can see evidence of that in our glue video – https://www.instagram.com/wooden_it_be_nice_canada/ The repair for this broken chair starts with gluing up the two broken parts that separated. Once those are dry, the chair is disassembled so the structure can be reinforced to prevent it from breaking again.
