A different dowel broke on my Roorkee today. It was a different stretcher, but it was in exactly the same place as the last one that broke.
|Different stretcher, but it was in the same mortise as last time.|
|Broom handles to the rescue!|
Perhaps pear is a bit brittle, but still...
|The cheapest of the cheap.|
|Not the nicest looking, but the chair sits. At least until the next tenon breaks.|
The good news is I have a couple of small projects coming up that will likely be made with some beautiful pear wood!
