mojo what kind of ozone generator do you have? I did a little reading about it. The thing that concerns me a little that I read is that ozone can destroy things, not just smells. In the case of a smelly cushion, well, it's toast anyway so it can't hurt.

Really beautiful, Steve.
I think I only understand about 1/2 of what you said.

To begin, what size buttons are those?

The natures miracle appears to have worked. I will seal it all up with shellac & rustoleum.

If you're talking pirelli, then there is very little stretch. Like 1/2"

If it were a piece for a pees customer, I wouldn't care. Though given how 100% so far have been peed on..
Yes absolutely people get used to the smell, whatever it may be.
This particular piece appears to have gotten peed on once or twice, nothing huge but it is rank.

Tried the bleach solution. Nope.
I had a little extra enzyme solution from the dog, didn't seem to completely work. Will try h2o2 next and then completely coat with oil based paint. That's all I can really do. Trying to be a master upholsterer, not woodworker/frame maker.
Just so annoying. Stupid problems taking away from the real deal.

I had gloves and everything on and still I got cut in 3 places ripping that smelly old burlap off. (From the klinch fasteners)
So basically replicate where they were but with a single hand tied square knot? Nothing further?

I was going to title this thread "odors" but I'll just cut right to the chase.

Almost everything I do, I eventually find evidence of cat pee.
It's almost like cigarette smoke, there's nothing you can do to get rid of it.
I'm talking about wooden frames, all the fabric upholstery has been stripped. Everything. So the cat pee permeates the frame. Now what?

The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Medical Insurance.

I hope if we continue to discuss this that it won't get political in the way of anger.
I don't think Obama intended to solve everything, I'm sure he didn't. He did make an attempt to reel in the big insurance cos making a killing (literally) off people.
The whole pre-existing thing haunted me from the time I was old enough to have to get my own insurance.
I am extremely lucky now to just have my wife's ins. I don't even look at the ACA.
I honestly don't know if gov't intervention is the answer. It doesn't seem so and while single-payer sounds great I think most of us know how that would work in real life. Badly.
Most of my fam live in the UK, which has socialized medicine. You're sick, you walk in and get treated. But again in reality it's an abomination. The way they treated my grandpa just makes me sick. I know it isn't an isolated case.
So here we are, 21st century and a few very priveleged people masmake off like bandits while the rest of us..

I know kody. It is really, really hard.
Big insurance cos and medical establishments know very well the plight of the average worker. They have so much more manpower.
Before ACA i was one of millions absolutely denied insurance, for something so petty and treatable.

Indeed, bankrupt is another topic.
Tonight I attended a local designer's meeting. The competition among furniture companies is fierce. It did not make me feel much better about re-upholstery. I suppose some custom work, here and there.
These designers are raking in huge amountso of money.

As I stated in the other forum, spammers are winning here.

Yet I will keep posting until there is a solution.

And today my question for everyone is: those of you who work solo, how do you prevent yourself from going bonkers?
I have a dog, but he is not a substitute for a human.
