Good stuff Steve. I read and hear rave reviews so I'll let you know how it works out.

Mostly don't like minwax but I did try their stain plus poly in one (black) that turned out well.

Steve have you used any general finishes gels? They seem to be all the rage. Better than minwax and whatever else is available at the nearest store.

I just ordered some GF since it's tough to find locally. Going to step it up a bit and recover this little mid century chair in a light blue leather, stain the legs java and the brass is already polished.

A lot of the time I opt to completely strip old varnish and start new - too many dings and scratches.

Though a few times I run into some wood that just doesn't stain well, dark & even.
I spot test a number of stains from danish oil to zar stains, etc. And, with a pre of dilute shellac.

Without being an expert woodworker here, not sure what to do.

'Rose picked up a copy so she could read and keep it'
There, fixed it for ya ;)

It is a really informative and interesting book. Now you just have to sneak it away from her when she's not looking.

Yes. I remember from my own studies when we decided to forego the conventional inner-spring mattress and go for a 100% latex mattress. As always, lots of misinformation and deviation tactics.
I did not know that each batch came out differently though.
We do really like our mattress. It is 3, 3" slabs. Vac packed, shipped, then you put it together. It is very comfortable. Strangely though is does still have a rubber smell.

Kody - looks good. Did you get the latex for a reasonable price?

And Steve- I understand now. Yeah I can see how that would be hard on the hands. I don't think I've seen mid century chairs quite like this before.

The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Furniture Upholstery Supplies - Cost?
« on: April 12, 2018, 08:58:44 PM »
I wondered about this too. Probably because of regulations in the production of petro chemicals?
Then if you're a 'little guy' going in, you just match their price, because people will pay it anyway.

The wife is a big Dodgers fan. But for years they've had this blackout thing to try to get people into the park. So even if you pay for cable, you might not get the game. Not sure what the deal is with extra sports packages. All I have is an antenna and a roku with hulu. Sometimes if we are very lucky we'll get a game, but it's rare.

These are the simplest seats possible. No sewing. No welt. Just a wrap.

I read a little about using water to help stretch it out. But my other thought is that it it was intended for upholstery that shouldn't be needed.
