Now, taking care of the back of the chair, we got it in clamps, drying for a while, we're going to take apart, the front of the chair. Knock off the stretcher. We've got all our joints marked, so we don't have to worry really too much about where they are going to go back to. We're going to tap three of four times and if that doesn't come apart, we're just going to leave that joined tight, it's better than breaking the chair. Just slowly tap your way out. You can see it gets a little confusing, when you take the chair apart, of which way it's going to go back together. See that one is tight also so we're going to leave that one joined together. And there you've got the exploded version of the chair.
