This was quite a minor repair in the scheme of things but it restored a damaged piece of furniture to its original state.
We bought this chair secondhand from Gumtree a couple of years ago. My original intention was to have an occasional chair in the corner of the office/library but I found a pair of chairs and the seller was not prepared to separate them so we bought them both and managed to fit both of them into the newly re-arranged room.
I recently noticed that a piece of wood had come off an arm of one of the chairs.
It appears that the rolled ends on the arms is actually 2 pieces of timber glued together and the glue had probably dried out allowing the curved underneath piece to become detached.
I applied some Aquadhere wood glue to the surface and used a clamp to hold it into position until the glue dried.
The chair now looks as good as new.
