This part of the chair was damaged during shipping and I was wondering if it would be safe to glue together.
The part on the left is a leg and the horizontal bar on the right supports the front of seat. I would imagine that the broken joint supports a bit of weight. Would glue be sufficient to hold it together?
The tenon is stuck firmly inside the mortise, I don't think I can extract it. If I were to attempt to glue it back together would I apply glue on the entire side face of the leg or just the broken tenon?
Here is a side view:
I have very little woodworking experience, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
