Troutman Chair Advantages
NO GLUE is used in Troutman Chair Company products. Shaker design and construction techniques are used in putting together the chairs. Which is why their chairs are tomorrows heirlooms.
SWELLED JOINT CONSTRUCTION - a technique of furniture construction borrowed from Shaker design. Larger posts (front and back) are air dried 6 to 9 months and smaller posts (rungs) are kiln dried. With the variance in moisture content, the small post swell and the larger posts shrink, making a much tighter fit than if they had been glued. A Troutman chair will get tighter over time.
INTERLOCKING JOINERY - the front frame and back frame are assembled separately. When these two parts are clamped together, the boring on each frame notches the dowel on the front post and the back post making it nearly impossible for the front assemble or back assembly to be pulled apart. This is another technique of shaker construction. No one else uses this technique. Consumers expect to pay more for quality handcrafted items.
