Hello AT,

I have a set of vintage Series 7 chairs in pretty good condition.

The other night, seemingly without any effort, a house guest broke one.

You can see the shard-shaped crack across the curve of the wood, and a vertical crack on the side.

Aside from learning about some top-secret miracle cure for this [I wish!], is there any way for me to care for my other chairs to prevent this from happening? Or is it inevitable?..

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)


Has this happened to anyone else with these chairs, or with curved plywood chairs in general?

Thanks! Maya
