Reparing a sofabed

Repairing and strengthening the sofa bed with a strip of aluminium left over from a previous life will give this bit of furniture a new lease of life. It’s invisible — on the inside, and good wood glue is essential too. Repairing rather than replacing is our strongly preferred option, mostly because it avoids all the up-stream environmental costs, be it logging for the timber or just delivering the bed down Devon’s narrow lanes.
