I did not use any fancy joining methods, I simply just glued and screwed. However because of the thickness of the framing wood, I first drilled a 1/2″ (12mm) diameter hole more than halfway into the The widest side of a piece of wood. piece of wood (where each screw went) and continued all the way through with a smaller hole (screw The nail not including the head. thickness).
Why the 1/2″ (12mm) diameter hole more than halfway into the wood?
It saved using bigger and more costly screws, and although it left 1/2″ (12mm) diameter holes in the wood where every screw went, it was just a matter of plugging the holes with 1/2″ (12mm) dowel.
The end result looked great and was in keeping with the type of chair.
To secure with nails or screws. all joints with glue and 3″ (75mm) wood screws, four screws to each The gap or space created when two building materials come together, such as where two pieces of molding join or where the bathtub and bathroom wall meet..
First Drill 1/2″ (12mm) starter holes all but 1 1/4″ (32mm) into each joints face piece.
Then continue through with a smaller (screw shank size) hole.
Add some glue and fasten with the screws.
Finally plug the holes with 1/2″ (12mm) diameter dowel glued in. Cut off any excess and sand.
