Chair Seat Repair Jig
Category: Shop, clamp, tool
Problem: My chair split in the seat and the only long C clamp that I had wouldn’t stay stable on the rounded edge of the chair seat when it was clamped tight.
Action: I made a U shaped block out of 3 pieces of wood, which would go over the edge of the seat and allow the clamp to push against it.
Result: It worked pretty well!
Additional Thoughts: In this case, I decided to slather on the glue generously and allow it to run wherever. And then, after it was clamped together tightly, I used the pressure washer to blast off the glue. I then tightened it some more, some more glue came out, which I wiped off with a damp rag. Much more efficient than trying to be parsimonious with the glue and not make a mess.
