How to fix a broken coffee table leg

We see a lot of broken furniture, and to be fair, we're in the business of restoration, so I suppose that's par for the course. What we also see a lot of, are incorrect repairs. If you search the internet for "how to fix a table leg", I'll bet you find tons of methods that involve glue and drywall screws. You might have seen my post on how to correctly repair a broken chair stretcher, and today I want to take a moment to explain the correct way to fix a broken table leg. Now, not all legs are created equal, but the example I'm demonstrating on is a very typical table leg design, and should apply to many tables. The table you are about to see didn't have any sheet rock screws in the leg, but it had definitely had a repair attempt made on it at some point, which obviously didn't work out, which is why the table was brought to us. When we repair a piece of furniture, it is as good, if not better than before it was broken - and we guarantee that.
