Re-Built Chair Frame, October 14th

I have posted pictures of this chair previously. Twice actually, HERE you can see it being dis-assembled and HERE you can see some of the dowels for this chair seat being re-shaped . All 4 corners of this chair seat came apart almost in shreds when it was dis-assembled. We have had to thoroughly glue the corners just to make the chair sit able again. Also, at some point, someone cut away the inside of the chair, where any upholstery or caning would have been attached. I have no idea why someone would have done that, it seems pretty silly to me. But you can see all the lighter colored wood we have added to the chair seat. There is still quite a bit of work to be done, but I thought this was an interesting step in the process to show you.
