repairing busted wood furniture

Among my first repairs was a rocking chair with a very thin bottom.  I used a paint stirrer with sand paper to sand out the old glue in the seat bottom.  I checked it by clamping it dry and it looked perfect.  So, I applied the glue.  I decided that it would not move up and down, but alas I was wrong.  I came back about 20 minutes later and the bottom had shifted.  I did not have the tool to gently slice it open.  So, I have never done another chair bottom.  Correct clamping can prevent much re-do.  :BangingHead:

I had to repair a split wooden seat on a chair once.  I glued and clamped it back together the put in a dutchman/viking/whatever-you-want-to-call-it.    I did not point it out to customer when she picked it up but she noticed it and was pleasantly surprised.
