Water Damaged Oak Chairs Restored

Antique oak side chairs with severe water damage, result of a broken hot water pipe.

Water damaged finish, joints very loose, and the upholstered slip seats smell damp and moldy.

Restoration began by removing the seats and re-gluing the loose joints. The finish was removed and chairs sanded to remove the water stains.

A traditional stain was used to show off the quartersawn oak. Finished in lacquer and finally rubbed and waxed.
