Good Questions: Repair Person for Sentimental Stool?

Hello AT,

Does anyone know an inexpensive carpenter who wouldn't mind doing a
small repair job? This stool is a casualty of my holiday party. It
just needs to have the cracked wood glued and the legs screwed back in - I'd do it myself if it didn't have sentimental value, but alas, it was my grandmother's and I'm afraid I'll make a mess of it...

Hoping to find someone who can fix it without charging a lot (I'm totally broke!) or giving me a hard time for wasting his/her time with such a small job. I live in Brooklyn but I don't mind lugging it elsewhere on the train.

Thanks, Karen

Dear Karen,

We know just the person for you: John Ewbank: Cabinetmaker and Finish Carpenter. He's English, skilled in cabinetry and particularly likes to repair antique furniture from what we understand. Give him a call and let us know how it goes.

Anyone else?
