« Part 14: Chair back Part 15 of Morris style glider series Part 16: Glider mechanism »

Made a quick trip to the local Stickley store to do some ogling, I mean research. I am glad I did, since I was a little stuck on the pivot pins on the backrest. I found that they use wooden washers to keep the backrest centered on the chair, since it is slightly narrower than the chair frame. I was also keeping my pins for the pivot and the positioning snug, but found Stickley’s quite loose making it much easier to reposition. It makes sense now that I think of it. The pins will never be subjected to much force that would cause them to pull out. They will only ever be pushed on in a shearing force.

Simple fix and I would suggest it to anyone making or want to add to their existing chair.
