No rubberized hair. Just the grey colored jute stuff that they say is used for autos. In the area there are at least 2 auto upholsterers that I know of, and also a fairly busy furniture upholstery biz. They supply those plus the public and the local area designers.

I called the shop and according to them upholsterers are using burlap and foam.
I'm confused. Are guys going cheap or what's going on here? This is a quality supply shop, not a rat hole.

Yes this chair is for resale.

It is challenging for me to test things as well as I only weigh 165lb. I will go to the supplier today and look for some rubberized hair and ask them what they think.

This is a little mid-century style chair. It's pretty basic stuff. Just curious what the different approaches would be to cushioning the seat, especially the front. It was foam and cotton batting.

I do have the springs covered with burlap. Would it be best now to sew a strip of fabric down so I can pad the front of the seat (in front of the first spring) with say 1" foam, then go over it again with another inch or so of foam?

Yeah I can definitely understand that. Most of the equipment is large, heavy... and takes up space. Constantly battling space.

I don't know what he is thinking. I honestly thought he was about to build himself a shop since he is only a few years from retirement. Though I had to help clean his Dad's house when he passed, and that was not easy. I don't think he wants to leave a huge ordeal when he passes. Absolutely he we help me with anything though. He has built some incredibly detailed pieces.

I am totally impressed with the woodworking. What a great skill set.
My father-in-law says he's done with woodworking. Maybe I'll pick up a few pieces.

Rich I thought the same thing! Searched it & saw photos of outdoor seating made from concrete. Then it dawned on me.

Interesting. I hadn't heard of these so I had to look up what they are. Does look challenging.

On #3 - I believe this is pig hair. I could be wrong. It is also used in dog beds. I have found it to be quite durable, actually.

I'll stick with '65. My real name is Ian. Not like there are so many people here that it's confusing.
But, call me what you like.

As you all know well, it's no fun having to re-do things. but I keep telling myself, no, I will do it until it is right.

I used those tack strips on the OB, and getting the prongs poked through the fabric was a challenge because of the weave. Had to be really careful not to snag a thread otherwise the whole pattern distorts.

Thanks for all the help everyone. Sometimes you need an extra set or two of eyeballs.

Now, onwards and forwards!

BTW, my name is Ian, I couldn't see where to update that.
