CORNELIUS – In his living room Jack Hart has a comfortable recliner, a lovely couch and an artisan table, but his favorite piece of furniture is a small, wooden Windsor chair he bought for $15 at the Habitat ReStore in Cornelius. It was in pieces when he got it, and he meticulously repaired it using only clamps – the way it should be done, he said.
That chair is just one of the many pieces of furniture Mr. Hart, 93, has repaired and restored over the past seven years. A World War II veteran and former engineer, he began volunteering at the Habitat ReStore in Cornelius in 2006 as a merchandise repair expert and has logged more than 3,500 volunteer hours since.
