Unscrewing the Chair Seat

&copy Leah French

Turn the chair upside down, and unscrew the seat from the frame.

Once you’ve removed the seat, make your repairs to the wood part of the chair -- painting, refinishing, or tightening joints. Make sure everything is dry, not sticky to the touch, before you reattach the seat.

Note: If you encounter a tack strip, a long strip of cardboard with tacks that hold the seat to the frame, instead of screws, just pry the seat off with a flathead screwdriver.
