Antique Repair

This 18th C. mahogany Chippendale ladderback chair from an unbelievable Scottish estate had some broken rungs but was otherwise a gem. I'd love to make a set for somebody because I can avoid the inherent  weakness which bedevils ladderbacks. 

The maker(s) put a lot of effort into the marquetry and (French?) brass applied to the legs of this tea table. But the attachment of the legs was weak and one had broken off. In fact, I wondered if the legs were added later to turn a tray into a table. I had to replace a section of wood that was badly damaged, refinish on the underside to original colours and revive the finish on the entire piece.
