PRACTICAL EXAMPLES OF STRUCTURAL WOOD WORKINGS: EIGHTH OF THE SERIES
SWING SEAT A swing seat made on the lines of this one is a very simple piece to construct. The posts are halved into the seat rails and fastened with two dowel1 pins. The back and end slats are tenoned into the seat rails and the seat itself is made comfortable by weaving in a bottom of cane. This will stand the weather, and if the swing were used on an exposed porch there would be no fear of warping as in a broad wood seat. TJse oak or chestnut fumed brown for the wood with wrought iron chains.

Its HIS piece is very simple in construction, but an unusually graceful design. beauty is much enhanced by the work done with the gouge on the sharp curve that appears in the top line of the back, and that occurs again in the bracket under the door. As will be noted, the cutting is deep at the sharpest point of the curve, The front edge of the small bracket and fades away gradually as the curve flattens. underneath is also cut away. The edge of the shelf under the floor is rounded, and the top is shaped underneath into a very flat ogee moulding. The long strap hinges, which are good in design and clever in construction, are of hammered brass. This cabinet is very convenient as a storage place for valued trifles and also to hold a few favorite books.
