Accent chairs come in styles and materials to suit every taste, every room and every wallet. A basic bargain-basement model of a contemporary chair is mass produced from mostly plastic, and will not break the bank. But a custom job, made from exotic wood from the Amazon and a tooled leather seat and back crafted by an internationally acclaimed artist, could set you back quite a few thousand dollars.
The traditional carpentry joints using in solid wood furniture are crafted to use the strength of the wood and design of the joint itself for its strength. A pinned tenon or a properly crafted dovetail joint needs no glue, nails or screws to make it secure. Unlike plywood or particleboard, solid wood joints do not separate their layers or disintegrate when they become wet. They remain strong, and expand and contract along with the parts they bind together in extremes of heat and cold.
