That's a bit frightening Gene. I know my area designers prefer Kravet. There's no way that should happen. If it were me I'd bring it up with a rep.

Paul I unuderstand what you mean now. I sometimes have trouble overthinking things.
Will post photo when I'm done.

Step 1: poke the tack nail through your finger (ow)

Step 2: do a better job


the transition is from back the seat is proving tricky, and leaving me with wrinkles that i'm less than happy about.

I agree paul. I read & reread your post. But obviously didn't understand.
I did run the carboard over.

I got my first top corner done, it's not perfect but he's what it looks like

1. I promise to kill the dacron at the edge.

2. How exactly do you do that top corner? I've been practicing on a piece of wood. I have used tack strip before and I like it. Should I start the strip a little lower so I can notch the corner and staple it?

Sorry to hear that Gene. Tis good advice for me though as I have one coming up that will be a first job for a new designer.

Need some advice here. I'm ready to put the outside back on. The transition from the backrest to the seat isn't the smoothest. I have both ply-grip and the other straight tack strip.
What would be best here? Ply grip all the way or tack strip?

This chair was from the 50s so they used cardboard strip and tacks.

Had to set this one aside for a bit.

Here's what I came up with. Got into a pickle, the seat has dense felt, then cotton, then dacron.

Thanks for that KodyDog. Been in a bit of despair.

Not as much as those in our fellow towns, though. The town of Paradise and it's residents - words cannot describe the horror those people went through.

Hi guys.
Sadly, I failed with my leather. I knew it was a possibility
Anyway, when rounding corners on things like seats - do you prefer a foam welt in a woven fabric & a fiber-flex in a leather or vinyl?

And if you're curious, I made 1 too many mistakes and now the boxing isn't enough to cover the side of the seat. I did try sewing to the bottom, still not enough.
