Salt of the Earth - Blessings -  - but customers and accounts have a way of turning your good intentions into unpleasant efforts.   - I also hate to work by the hour - but do folks really appreciate speedy craftsmanship or are they really looking at the bottom line ?  Evolution applies to upholstery - I'm sure !

A little late to the thread but I think it's a fun skill to learn and earn as you go.  Many chair weaves fail from loose or broken joinery - therefore remember to look carefully for structural issues when pricing out a job.
I purchase supplies from H.H. Perkins in CT. and they are the nicest folks to deal with. Highly recommend them.  They also have classes if you can travel - it's worth the time to check them out.

If you have Children that are interested in the business your asset continues through the next generation.  It's tough when your two hands are the whole business.  Gratefully I have done what I've liked to do for my entire working time and wouldn't trade that for a business I'd be able to sell.

He isn't risking as much as you - you're the one moving a business to something yet to be determined. Why not ask him to put up a sum of money - to even things up and invest in you.

Please recommend a pneumatic gun for general use for (webbing, burlap. etc.)  other than fabric.

I sewed it with strong twine - the base of the springs to the webbing -

This is the seat where I was going to try and stiffen the springs.  Change of plan, I re did it all. New webbing,
retied springs and will put new cushion.  The springs weren't soft - rather the webbing and filling was not doing the job.  The old filling was straw and horse hair woven and sewed into a burlap wrapped cushion.  I'm going to fill the voids around the springs with padding and use a new 2 in. foam cushion wrapped in Dacron.  Should I cut the cushion full out or 1/2 less for the Dacron layer. Would you bevel the top of the cushion.  Also any other observations or critique is appreciated.  Thank You

Thanks MinUph + All

It is a budget job and the decking is in great shape - springs tied nicely + webbing tight so no sense in me messing with it.  The foam will be OK for this job - it's an occasionally used chair belonging to a senior.  Someone over 80 so don't think your a senior too MinUph - but liking your suggestions for a old timer :)

Thanks for the reply + advice.
 Are you saying to take foam - whatever extra pieces are laying around and stuff the center of each spring or slide foam in between the coils where they scissor together ?
