Flax seed dates back to 3000 BCE, when Emperor Charlemagne of Babylon believed in its health benefits and thus required his empire to consume it in their daily diets.It is used as a preservative for wood, concrete, and an ingredient in paints, varnishes, and stains. As if that wasn't enough, it is also used in soaps, inks, and in the production of linoleum. Before the invention of modern preservatives and synthetics, flax-seed was commonly used as a stand-alone preservative for wood, natural (hemp) rope, and masonry, as a conditioner for natural boar's hair paint brushes, and as an additive for oil paints.

Adding yet more strength the v-groove corner block is then glued with non toxic water base glue into place. We see this same level of durable construction used in the creation of all Amish chairs and tables which also use mortise and tenon joint.
