Steve: great. something to look forward to.

Kody: Had this already too. It's people just trying to be polite. But honestly, there has to be a better way to answer. Neither want either, they're just talking.

Anyway, these questions aren't for nothing. I'm pushing myself hard to network. So far, so good. Not my idea of fun, by necessary.

Steve - well, that's the plan. Upholster pieces with a lower price tag than some of the high-end stuff.
And, use it as a showcase to gain commission work.

What does everyone call themselves? Other than upholsterer, or re-upholsterer,

Artisan? Tradesperson? Craftsperson?

What is a "fox edge"?

And as far as the webbing, I think you're talking about the black stuff. I am not sure what difference this makes except that it is sort of elastic.

Thanks for that, Paul.
I've decided I'm going to run the fabric RR. Does this mean I should do the same for the cushion?
And also the apron (the front facing directly under the seat)?

This is going to be a killer piece.

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

To begin, what size buttons are those?

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

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?

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.
