Gluing some loose chairs

People ask me all of the time if I only work on Antiques. As a matter of fact, I work on all manner of furniture. Recently I received some chairs which are brand new but were in need of tightening. In addition, I found one had developed a crack where a screw that was too long had been inserted. below are some photos of the repair of the crack and the chairs disassembled and being glued.
Here is the crack in the leg being re-glued.
The next two photos show the chairs disassembled. Once they were knocked apart, the old glue was removed from the joinery.
Below are two photos of the chairs being re-glued.
