co, We've got some old Duncan Phyfe chairs. The table and chairs did belong to Sharons family. But they have been pretty thoroughly abused over the years. Most of the chairs succumbed to glue failure some time ago. I took them apart and put them in a box.
We are thinking that gee, until I get my infamous maple table and chairs put together, I might as well re-assemble some of these. Might make it easier to get rid of the table someday as well if it came with more than just 2 chairs.
My questions are;
- What is the best way to clean up the old glue from the dowel holes?
- In the attached picture you can see that some of the joings 'mesh' together. Anything to do to clean the glue up there?
- What kind of refinishing options should I consider? Right now I'm thinking just a wipe down with murphy's oil soap and leave it be.
Thanks in advance!
