Wicker Chair Repair Help
I need help in fixing this wicker chair. To be clear, a ‘professional’ repair is not needed. A ‘down-n-dirty’ fix will be just fine.
I haven’t given more than a minute’s thought, but my first thought is to simply tie it together with some white, quality paracord. And if I can get it drawn in close enough, run some screws in where the nails currently are.
And drawing it in together might be the biggest challenge. I tried manually bringing the legs together (red arrows in the overview shot) and couldn’t even get close. My guess that thru time the legs have been forced apart and are set wide, like they were steam bent or something.
It’s definitely going to take a lot of clamping/ tourniquet pressure to bring them in.
Thoughts, ideas, suggestions?
