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.
The main rectangular frame should be formed using thick solid wooden beams, joined at each corner with mortise and tenon joints. Dowel-reinforced butt joints will eventually come apart, and dovetails joints are unsuitable for this type of thick framework. The wood has to be thick for two reasons: a) it must hold the weight of those sitting on the sofa, and b) it must offer a strong base for tacking on the webbing holding the springs and the covers.
