There is one other thing that I wanted to talk about and that is in case you find a wooden plug in this chair and you can't see the screw. Often what you're going to have to do is take a small chisel and your mallet and put it right in the middle of that plug just about where this screw slot is and smack it and then turn the chisel and smack it. You want to break that plug into three or four different pieces and then just sort of lever them out with a little pair of pliers or just the end of your chisel. And that will let you get to the screw. You may have to go buy some plugs to replace it and put a little bit of color on the plug to make it match the chair, but that's another whole story there. Ok, now so the chair is waxed up. We'll get a nice soft cloth and just buff it.
