Once assembled the frame is moved into the prep room and is webbed with jute webbing, burlapped and then sprung by using an eight way hand tying method as used by furniture manufacturers in "the old days".
Once the frame is sprung and burlapped it is then ready to be padded and upholstered. Only the best materials available are used at our facility to produce the highest quality result we can achieve.
At Connors Design we start by constructing a custom size frame. Most of the wood used in our frames is soft maple. Soft maple is an extremely strong hardwood that is just soft enough to accept nails for springing and staples for applying materials and fabrics without splitting. The rails and post are cut to size and are then double doweled and glued. The frame components are then assembled by gluing and clamping them together and are then left for several hours to set up and dry. Finally corner blocks are added to all four corners for stability and strength.
