Chair restoration January 23 2013

The workshop has just begun restoration on chairs from a medical clinic. These are our Markus chairs which have been in service for over 10 years, and being in a high traffic area they have already been re-upholstered before. This time they will undergo a complete restoration which includes timber restoration, rewebbing and re-upholstery to make them like new. First step is to strip them down, and yes, people really do dispose of their chewing gum on the underside of the seats...
