I prepared this one earlier ... bought this chair from the tip, yep, they're mean round here. Took it completely to bits and dunked it in borax solution to kill any woodworm. Has a new oak leg as I wasn't even going to begin to try and find beech. I cut four inches off the far side of the seat and replaced it with mahogany which meant boring a few new holes as well. Glued it back together with 3M aircraft epoxy in three stages, first the legs, then the sides and lastly the back slats and comb just because I couldn't be bothered to give myself a hard time and I'm not an octopus. The 3M aircraft epoxy is brilliant because it doesn't go off for an hour and sets like concrete.
