This piece belongs to an antique dealer I do some work for. She bought it back east and came in with the leg broken off. I should have taken a picture of it while it was broken. When I examined the piece in the shop I could see where someone had attempted to repair it in the past. I centerdrilled the leg and put a dowel in then I glued the leg back on. Attachment 40010After the glue dried I filled in the crack and sanded the piece to where the crack wouldn't show. Then I color matched the stain using transfast dye.Attachment 40008 Put a coat of finish on and good as new.Attachment 40009
It may not look like it in the picture but the color match is perfect. There is no finish on it in the second picture and the dye dries dull.
