They are wooblely lose. The customer that brought then to my told me her boys tend to sit in them on the back two legs a lot. No mortise and tenon, just dowels. Most of them are dry, I can pull them out with my fingers. Like I mentioned above the factory that made them was stingy with the glue, not much used anywhere. And it’s some kind of red stuff that dries hard and looks like wax. Most of the places where the pieces butt together had the stain seep in between the joints compomising the glue. They’re pretty but they are mass produced second rate chairs. Not a job that I really wanted but the lady that owns them is a friend of my mother’s for the last 60+ years and has known me for all of my time here on this planet. She’s an old family friend and a good customer I kinda had to fix them.
