I suspect that most of us with gardens will have garden chairs similar to the one in my photos.
They look good at the shop. They look as if they're made from some exotic hardwood. And they are usually affordable.
But in reality they are poor quality and don't last too long. I'm not sure how many I've had collapse beneath me; at least four. After a few years they simply 'break', even when over-wintered indoors; as are ours.
This particular one broke yesterday. The seat's tongue-n-groove joints had rotted, and only through quick action did Cro not end up flat on the floor.
However, they're easily mended, and with a few offcuts, some glue, and half a dozen screws all is well again. Voila!
As Lady Magnon just said "Invisible Mending".
