Mrs. Black is a Chef on a on the Creative Cooking Channel. She called me to have a favorite Bombay tea table repaired, someone had leaned on it the the table legs had snapped.
This post shows the nine steps to repair this mahogany English tea table.
Step 1: Mrs. Black purchased her table at the Hollywood Bombay location, this table is not longer being sold but a similar one can be seen here. Fig.1 and above fig.2 shows the snapped leg and the table leaning against the wall. Fig.3 shows the leg by itself.

glue to the leg slot
Step 6: Now assemble the legs together and use plant wire to help support the legs until the glue dried and the legs are strong again.
Step 7: Fig.8 shows the use a clean wet sponge to removed the glue from the edges.

Step 8: Use rubber bands in coordination with plant wire to hold the legs tightly. It's difficult to do because there is no easy place to place the rubber bands. Fig.9 shows a plant wire reel which is usually green and has a green paper outer covering with a metal wire interior with allows strength when used. The rubber bands are in place to hold the body tightly against the table column.
