can this seat be saved?
Our kitchen breakfast table is a round antique oak table with four chairs. Recently, the chair I use started sagging. I found that it is virtually disintegrating. The wood is dry from age and simply crumbling. I would like to save the seat for it's antique value and reinforce it so we can continue using it. The seat is a plywood about 1/8" thick and glued around the edge to a small lip. The center is unsupported. I could add a thickness and sandwich the two together but that would make the seat thicker and not look right.
I'm not sure adding something to the bottom would give the strength needed. The seat could be replaced but then we would lose the antique value.
What say the jury?
