Figure 482:1 shows a lounge chair of knockdown construction, using tenoned or dowelled side frames and separate back frame and front apron rail connected with suitable slot-headed screws engaging in sunk nuts. There is no seat frame as such, and resilient rubber webbing is used for the suspension, anchored with metal clips as shown at 482:lA, A, top rail 482:2A, A. and front rail 482:2B, B. The front rail (482:2B) should have locating stub dowels either side of the central screw to prevent it twisting. Figure 482:3, 4 is another framed-up chair with finger-jointed arm rests and tenoned or dowelled front, side and back rails, with the back frame screwed from the inside into the arm and lower rails. Here again suspension is with resilient webbing.
