Yes, that's where I learned of that technique.

KodyD-
Yes, in certain situations I have attached foam to the backrest, then cut it. Especially if curved. I suppose I could do it another way, just seemed easiest.

Good stuff Kody. I also have seen people interested in decorating with pews as you said. And for someone to reintigrate post Vietnam is a monumental feat.

Well the EZE is pretty burly compared to a turkey knife.
Thick, solid foam - cuts like 'a hot knife thru budda'
Though, soft foam, it kind of just runs into it. Which is a bit concerning - like say I pad the backrest with soft foam, and I want to trim it to the top rail. Will it do the same thing?

Good point Kody.
I'd think in a humid climate like yours, it's better safe than sorry.
Finding a tech though, I don't know.

If I lost 35 lbs I would be emaciated. I'm 6', 165lbs.

Paul, I am highly, highly offended. I can't even begin to --

Sprung for an EZE. Letcha all know how it goes. Next job pays for it anyway. My edges weren't ever ragged, but looking foward to an easier tool to use.

Looks good Steve. What did you do for those front corners?

And a lot of times for low back pain, your glutes or butt needs stretched.

Yup, straight cuts are tricky. I do fine now, and as you say, with Dacron etc it doesn't matter much.
Still using a Monty Ward that was given to me. And first used as the tool for the TG turkey. Keeps on hummin away.

I look all the time ebay and rarely does a used bosch go for much less than a brand new one.

Gene, you must have cut an awful lot of foam for those blades to become dull.

I've looked at a couple fileting knives (electric) which some people say work great. But they have the short coiled cord. And, no bottom guide to keep the blade straight.

All good advice here.

I am still a lot less experienced. But so far I just plan for longer. As long as the customer knows up front it might take a little longer, that's better than not meeting your agreed date. So far I haven't missed a self imposed deadline.

Kody - sorry you had that experience. They do look incredible though. What kind of fabric was it?

You're really branching out from upholstery Steve?

I had another thought. A little while ago I spotted a furniture reupholsterer down in LA actually hand sewing. It was one of those Arne Jacobsen egg chairs. If you're not sure what this is, check it out. Probably the epitomy of unreal, gray hair inducing curves and contours.
Plus, it was done in leather. Pinned first then hand sewn. Came out beautiful.
Btw, thanks for suggestions already made

Well... that's no fun.

We have a couple IKEA barstools that are leather over a foam substrate (closed cell I think -very thin) which are stitched. Granted they have better tools and equipment.. but, is there any way I can do this without the buttons? Client was quite adamant. Worse comes to worse, I'll just say sorry, it's beyond my skill level. I will be doing  some nice loungers which I'll share.
