Fulcrum Points

Mark Mandell - Gone Round In New Jersey
The closer the point of reinforcement is to the joint, the greater advantage for flex is given to the longer non-reinforced portion of the leg and the more torsional stress is put on the joint. Stretchers below the mid-points in the legs make the wood chair much stronger on the front-to-back axis.
