Members of the frame of a pidhi are usually fixed to the legs using mortise and tenon joinery. As no nails or dowels are used to hold this joinery, the webbing of the seat holds this assembly together. Due to the regular use of this pidhi, the joinery had loosened which caused a slight slant of the legs.
