The last two repair remedies this chair needed before its inauguration into productive service life were reinstalling it with the old leg brackets and creating and installing a set of new corner blocks.

The old quarter-circle leg brackets were originally connected with the same kind of inferior screws that I talked about before. So I decided to replace them with stronger and longer washer head screws. I drilled the counterbore holes, applied a dab of glue, and screwed in the screws. 

A bit screwdriver T-handle like this one is a great helper when driving screws into wooden parts as long as you don’t over-torque the screw and break it.

The Corner Blocks

Corner blocks are essential for extending the structural integrity of chairs’ joints. They span from apron to apron and prevent the tenon or dowel joints from opening up. Unfortunately, the original corner blockers of my chair broke off, plus their grain orientation was not ideal in the first place, so I decided to build new ones.
