Had a job where the sofa frame was poking through the upholstery.  This was a new piece of
furniture.  After removing considerable upholstery I noted there was no glue used in the framing
which was mostly particle wood.

The legs were made of plastic - a screw on type.

The frame was literally broken in 3 or 4 places. 

Being new the request still wanted a fix.

I also noticed the particle wood pieces were not glued or screwed where joined.  Instead the

particle wood had slots cut to accommodate the wood joins - designed to slip on member, then

rotate 90 degrees then a large construction staple to finish the join (particle wood was split in

most cases).

Sure don't build furniture like the old days?  Which means what for the future in reupholstery?

Obviously, the stuff can be built way much cheaper this way -- and it will be bought!
