Restoring this bentwood chair involved:
Reconditioning the finish.
Replacing the cane seat.
Re-gluing was only required at the front legs – where they attached to seat. The rest of the joints were connected with screws (original), and just needed to be tightened.
The chair was then cleaned, lightly scuffed, colored, polished with shellac, rubbed, and waxed.
New cane webbing was installed for the seat, and then stained to give an aged look.
This bentwood chair was restored for a Hillsdale NY client.
