Chair construction

Traditional chairs were normally framed together with mortise and tenon joints, for dowel-pegs had to be hand-shaped and boringbits were primitive. Modern chairs rely more on dowelling techniques, and there can be no valid objection to this providing the pegs are of sufficient length to hold the joint. The usual procedure is to make up the front and back frames first, and then connect with the side rails unless a knock-down assembly is used. All chair-work requires accurate full-size drawings from which the correct angles and bevels can be taken, and more elaborate chairs really need a full-size working model or prototype in softwood which can be tested and altered as required.
