Great photos, thanks for sharing! I have a couple questions about seat frame support and fastening. I realize that you no longer have the original seat frame, but you still may know the answers.

I see on the front rail there are some dowel pins that would fit a mating hole in the seat frame. From the looks of the front leg photos, it also looks like there may have been a screw through the edge of the seat frame and into the front leg to hold it in place. Is that correct?

Was the rear of the seat frame held against the lower rear rail in the same way? I see what looks like a dowel hole in that rail in the 2nd-to-last photo above. Were there matching dowels on the edge of the seat frame that indexed into that lower rail? And a couple screws to hold it in place?

Thanks again!

I’m also curious about this. Does the seat front just sit on the front seat rail? How does the back of seat attach, just the 3 dowel pins into the lower rear rail?

Yes and Yes!
The front seat frame just sits on the front rail and is aligned with 2 dowels on top of the front rail.
The back of the seat frame is also attached to the frame with just 3 dowels.
Matter of fact…the whole chair can be disassembled really easily. apparently, these chairs were meant to be sold in boxes like Ikea stuff. Very interesting concept for a chair 55 years old.

Have your say...
