What applies to a sofa frame also applies to a chair. The sofa frame must be constructed from solid wood. The wood should not be so hard that it cannot accept blue upholstery tacks. Frames which are joined with nails or glue tend to be weak and have only a limited life. The strongest wooden sofa frames are constructed using traditional jointing techniques.
A sofa frame must be made from strong, thick wooden beams and crossbars. They must be correctly jointed together using mortise and tenon joints, because they have a lot of weight to bear and also a large number of upholstery tacks to accommodate. The wood cannot be too soft or the tacks will not hold, nor too hard or the tacks will fail to penetrate. Oak, cherry and certain species of pine are fine.
