These dining table pedestals were damaged during a basement flood.
The legs, which are constructed of several smaller pieces of wood, were coming apart at the seams.
To repair them, I first disassembled all the pieces and scraped off the old glue. Then with a series of glue ups, the legs were reassembled. Any open seams were filled and sanded flush. The legs were then re-attached to their pedestal.
The remaining finish was removed, and everything was stained and finished to match.
Once completed, the legs looked as though they’re made of a single piece of wood.
These two table pedestals were repaired for a Hudson NY client.
