The customer wanted to stain the cherry side chairs darker to match their Kitchen set with the arms - I tried to talk him out of it but no luck.  The arm chair was beech and the side chairs cherry.  Had to strip and bleach the cherry wood side chairs to kill the red.  A wash coat of raw umber to further kill red.  A dark gray stain, than sealed, a chalky black glaze, 4 coats of lacquer.  Too much trouble trying to match the color with different woods. Glad this one is done.  Clean up the shop and have a beer now

Paul maybe it was a yard plus - not much more if any.  I didn't measure other than to put a seat on top of one quadrant when I picked up the chairs and I had pull. The fabric was folded in half and half again so there were 4 squares that seemed to be enough without measuring - the slip seats were small
The pattern another story - 4 different images -

Congratulations - well done with the efficiency of a marine !  Remember your office comes last - is the coffee pot close by and can the crew hear you cursing when your office door is closed ?

All the Best


Two beggars were sitting side by side on a street in Rome.
One had a Cross in front of him; the other one was holding a Star of  David.
Many people went by, looked at both beggars, but put money only into the hat of the beggar sitting behind the Cross.
One day, a  procession came past, and it included His Holiness The Pope.
He stopped to watch the throngs of people giving money to the beggar who held the Cross, while none gave to the beggar holding the Star of  David.
After a few minutes, the Pope approached the beggar with the Star of David and said, "My poor fellow, don't you understand?  This is a Catholic country.
"This city is the Seat of Catholicism.  People aren't going to give you money if you sit there with a Star of David in front of you, especially when you're sitting beside a beggar who is holding a Cross.  In fact, they would probably give more money to him just out of spite."
The beggar with the Star of David listened to the Pope, smiled, and turned to the beggar with the Cross and said, "Bernie, look who's trying to teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing!"
