These are 2 pieces that I found in the school junk pile. I am working on them now and hope to have results for you soon. Does anyone know how to get old glue off of wood. The drawer is all there but in pieces. Someone has attempted to put it back together with glue and it is a dried glue mess. Please give me any suggestions on how to get rid of the glue so I can work on putting it back together properly.  Thanks so much.

It will be a beautiful when you get this done! I love the chair too - a cool piece!!

Remember to post when you get them done!!
