A common repair is to ‘tighten’ loose furniture such as chairs, tables, or chest of drawers. We can tighten frames by gluing critical joints. If needed, we can completely disassemble the piece of furniture, remove old glue, and reassemble the piece. In fact, it would seem that a piece that is falling apart is more difficult and more expensive to repair when the exact opposite is true. In almost all circumstances it makes the job of disassembly quicker saving time and money and the piece of furniture.
