U.S. Made Oak School House Chairs Clear Finish On Natural Oak
|All school house chair component parts are made with U.S. grown oak wood species. The chairs are also completely manufactured in the United States.
The seat is made from 1¼" lumber (finished 1"). The seat is saddled and also rounded in front for maximum comfort. The top cross back is made from 1" lumber, steam bent and rounded on the front edge. The lower cross back is also made from 1" lumber, steam bent and double doweled to the back posts with spiral dowels. The vertical form-fitting slats are finished 1" X 3/8" and mortised into the top and bottom cross backs. The front posts (legs) are made from 2" lumber, tapered from the seat rail to the floor. The back posts (legs) are steam bent and are made from 1¼" lumber. The stretchers are of H type construction consisting of two side stretchers and one cross stretcher from 1" lumber. One extra 1" stretcher is chucked and glued to the back posts several inches below the seat. The School House Side Chairs also have steam bent braces that are glued and screwed to the seat and back posts for added strength. The chair frame is further reinforced with corner blocks which are glued and screwed to the seat rails. All corners and edges of the chair are rounded.
