Here’s an antique plant stand that I repaired, touched up and polished. It’s made of solid oak and has barley twist legs.
The old glue had let go, and as you can see from the photo, it just fell apart. Some of the parts were split and broken, but all the pieces were there.
To repair it, I began by inspecting each part, scraping off the old glue and repairing anything that was broken.
Glue was then applied to all the joining pieces of the top section, re-assembled, and clamped tight overnight.
The loose base and legs did not come apart, so they were injected with glue and clamped tight.
Next, everything was cleaned and polished with Rosini’s Rejuvenator. The repaired areas were touched up, and everything was polished.
This plant stand was repaired for a Salisbury CT client.
