I have a dining room chair with a lattice back made of wood strips
approximqtely 1" wide and about .15 mm. thick in a light finish. Some of
the strips are broken and I can see how to repair the back, but I can't
locate any strips. Any suggestions? I can send a photo of the chair.
Thanks in advance.
Your local lumberyard or home center will have something similar to
1/4" x 1" called, funnily enough, lattice. Glue two of them together
and you have 12 mm, glue a piece of veneer or two in between to make a
sandwich 15 mm.
Well, we've all seen ladder back (apparently aka lattice back) chairs,
so you know what the OP is talking about. The thing I found curious
wasn't the odd bracketing of the 15mm with periods, but the use of
inches and mm in the same piece of wood. I don't like to _measure_
and now I have to do conversions on _one_ piece of wood...? Hoo boy.

Very common over here in the UK. Although we officially went metric
nearly 40 years ago, road signs and speed limits are still imperial. Cars
still do so many miles per gallon. (A proper gallon, though).
Lumber is still sold planed to 2x4 but in metric sizes so you actually
buy 2.4m of 96x44mm instead of an 8' 2x4. Ridiculous. And around $10
apiece for not-so-good pine as well, in small quantities :-(

;-) No, cash is measured in £'s but I know you leftpondians have trouble
with 'math' (and spellyng) so I almost-doubled it for you.
Having said that, for IT stuff and gadgets we pay £1 per $1 anyway by the
time it gets here :-(
And petrol is over £1 a *litre* now - $7.50+ per US Gallon.

Maybe something like this? Tech data states real wood, no backing and
either face out. 1/28" - 1/40" thick products available. Available at
most veneer suppliers.
See the "applause" chair for use example;
