I wanted to show an example of the correct way to repair broken turnings. Broken turnings are often badly repaired. An impatient or inexperienced restorer will attempt to glue them back together with a dowel. This never works, structurally or aesthetically. The turnings on this Victorian canterbury are very slender and quite a few were broken. When I repair turnings the damaged section is removed and a new section is turned and fitted, this makes for a seamless repair.
