Furniture help


I have a wooden "Captains Chair", as part of a matching set to our dining set. The chair was cracked in the back leg, straight from the delivery truck. We neglected to take it back (mostly since it sat in our garage for 6 months before we were ready to use it)....

Anyway. I pleaded my case to the furniture store and he took pity on me (probably since we just bought a $300 buffet..). He sent me a new back for the chair (apparently, they are screwed together). Well, I got the new back and it looked simple enough to replace, then I look a the chair... Everything is glued and screwed. They also have gusset blocks that mound the seat frame to the legs and all that is glued. I can not think of anyway to get this apart without practically destryoying it. Any ideas out there?

I don't know what kind of glue they used. i would go to the store and buy some dust off. the air in the can you use to blow off your keyboard for your computer. remove all screws and shake the can up and spray the cold air on the glue joint and try giving it a tap with a mallet. and see how that works. It did work for me on another project.
