The standard finish is a medium oak colour with a hard-wearing gel poly finish. Other finishes available on request. The basic plywood is very pale, so can be stained to any colour.

The back is normally pierced by a quatrefoil. This can be left solid if desired, with the circular roundel to be decorated by a heraldic device (not included).


Construction

Construction is in sustainable birch plywood, not rainforest. Armrest rails are locally grown oak. Birch plywood is lighter and stronger than tropical plywood and has a more attractive grain figure.

Assembly

Wedges locking the chair parts in place

Wedge

The chair is held together with small oak wedges, or "tusked tenon" construction.

Dismantled

Removing the wedges allows the chair to be taken apart into four flat panels.>

The pieces stack together for easy carriage. One can be carried one-handed. They're even supplied with Velcro retaining straps, a wedge bag and spare wedges.


Assembly

Assembly is easy with one-person. Just assemble one side first, then the other. Either lean it against a wall, or lay it down on the floor.
