Skillfully carved and finished Egyptian Woodworking Hatnofer's chair is a fine example of Egyptian woodworking. The various elements were assembled with mortise-and-tenon joinery, with pegs to hold the tenons in place. Pegs also fasten the braces to the back and seat. The joins were reinforced with a resinous glue.
