Chair repair


Recommended Posts

I need some help. I am trying to patch chips on a laminated chair row end piece. I tried a wood filler and let it dry for a couple of days but it wipes off with a wet cloth. I need something that will match the color and survive being wiped down occasionally.  Any suggestions?

They will chip again.

Over here we have a 2 pack 'builders bog'. (Smells the same as the stuff you patch cars with.) Then you file it down n shape it.

The painter will need to match the paint (inc grain) with those special 'faux' clear lacquer with stain in it for the grain.... Not an easy solution. Very labour intensive. And only good till the next hard knock.

 

PS. Is that a 'laminex' type product over compressed particle board? (ie not solid wood...)

Correct. We anticipate that it will be an ongoing process and it's purely cosmetic. I plan on getting a solvent based product and testing that on a few of the chairs. I estimate that I have over a 100 repairs to do and I've already done half of them with the other product. The current repairs will look fine until someone wipes down the chair row end caps, however I'm told that doesn't happen very often. I hope that I find the right product and when the repairs that I have already made get wiped away, I'll make a better repair.

you could also just get another laminate installed over entire side.

 

bondo the damaged area

belt sand entire side

contact adhesive both sides

recommended dry time

have some sticks if needed, apply the laminate

roller

router the edge's and/or file the edges

Thanks, however that isn't feasible for now. There are probably over 100 chairs that need to be repaired and i don't want to mix a two part epoxy for every chair. The chairs have to be disassembled to remove the end cap and there are not any spare caps available so all repairs are in place. 

 

I tried the solvent based filler but I can't get a smooth finish without sanding and I don't want to sand the laminate and ruin the finish. 

 

My current plan is to continue to use the water based wood filler. Then I can either paint the repair to waterproof it or just replace the repair if it gets washed off...
