ABSTRACT
The article states that the next time a customer complains about delivery times, thank your lucky stars you're not selling this particular Chinese export--elm tree chairs. A Chinese pensioner takes five years to finish his chairs. According to the China Morning Business View, he arranges the branches of the tree into the shape of the chair while it is still a sapling. Elm has the advantage over other woods because it does not break when you bend it.
