Mount Support System

Now the seat support assembly can be mounted to the side frames. This assembly is mounted at an angle to make the chair more comfortable. After a few "test sits" I decided on an angle of 6°. This angle gives the feeling of sitting "in" the chair rather than just "on" it.

To mount the support system, first locate the position of the pilot holes for the lag screws. The Vs" pilot holes on the front legs are located down from the bottom edge of the arm and W from the inside edge of the leg, see Fig. 10.

The pilot holes on the back legs must be lower to get the 6° angle (mentioned above). To locate the pilot holes on the back legs, mark a line 11W down from the bottom edge of the arm. Then temporarily screw the cleat to the front leg and align the center of the counterbore (on the back of the cleat) with the marked line. Poke an awl through the counterbore to mark the position of the pilot hole. Finally, drill Vh pilot holes in the back legs.

assembly. Now the seat support assembly can be glued and screwed to the side frames. NOTE: When you're ready to drive the lag screws home, be sure to mount the chair's back frame in position. Apply a coat of wax to the pivot dowels and pop them into the holes in the back frame.
