Personally I'd pull it apart to reglue it.  Take the hip-huggers off between the seat and back legs, pull the screws from the back legs to the seat.  Check whether there are any screws or nails from t...

Post: RE: What finish is on old oak church pews?

About 20 years ago I redid about 15 pews for a church.    My guess they were from around 1950 and the finish was varnish. No guarantee that's what you have but a possibility.  Good Luck.
