    Rescued this Chippendale period walnut chair from an antiques dealer who was ready to throw the chair out. Though not true restoration because the top piece was completely broken off and missing, I went ahead and repaired the complicated breaks using glue and dowels, sanded smooth the stubs of wood to look as if the top portion never existed, then faux grained the look of walnut, staining and finishing the entire chair to match....
