Ah yes, joinery.  That may be the hardest part of this project.
Here is a picture of the original chair, showing a pegged M&T.
There is another peg through the lower stretcher I can see in
another picture.

Maybe it was wet/dry, but it may have been drawbored.
I'll never know, but since I have little choice in how dry
my stock is, I will peg the joints.
