Leg Repaired, Dog Out of Trouble

When the client called she said the dog had chewed on the legs of a chair. When I saw the damage I wanted to ask, “Was it a dog or was it a beaver!” Spent over a half day working on site to erase the dog’s work.  The pictures above show the repair of one leg.  Four legs were damaged, but this one was by far the worst.

Dog chewed leg. The damaged area was originally square!

Added screws to the leg to give epoxy putty something to hold on to.

Several applications of epoxy putty were applied and shaped to the original contour. Here the leg is ready to be sanded smooth.
