8-Way Hand Tied Construction

The most skilled workers in a furniture factory are the ones who hand tie seats. Here is a clip–taken during our visit to Hickory Chair University–of the precision and dexterity required to execute this complicated task.  This construction technique ensures that all the springs in a seat work together.  All great sofas and chairs are made this way–just as they have been for hundreds of years. We hope you are fascinated by the speed and accuracy of this gentleman’s work.  Enjoy!
