Service call today - new furniture and customer's repair expectations always high with new product  - cross grain gouge.  Burn in and color - matte finish.  The guy was born the same year as me but doing a little better than me :)  Anyway we talked Frazier - Monroe Knicks - and the draft we both missed by 100 numbers - an unfair advantage for a service man to bond with the client.  He had to say he liked the repair.

Service call today - satinwood banding - a piece broken off that I glued back but another piece lost measuring 3/4 in. wide. Burn in back ground color and grain with a tiny brush -   Tough matching the natural color - looked OK once polished to match satin gloss

The movers sent me to a house to retouch an arm they glued.  I couldn't do it in the house because of the bad glue job they did.  I told the owner the cost of repair is $ 200.00 more than it should have been because of the crew trying to do repairs on the fly.  I see this all the time and can't understand why they think they can repair fine furniture in the back of the truck with gorilla glue

They used the Gorilla Glue and thought they could clamp it with tape? This is why amateurs shouldn't attempt repairs. Especially with Gorilla Glue. What a mess. Now you have to clean all that glue out before you can repair it properly. I feel for you, I hope the moving company is footing the bill.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Pried apart the gorilla glue repair with a box knife and flat screwdriver - cleaned up the surfaces and glued the broken parts back 3 three clamps - epoxy glue.  Mix 5-1 always a waste but the pumps disburse like a 1/4 deep in a plastic cup.  West system - haven't found anything stronger.  Next sand smooth and fill
