Great work KodyD. It is interesting how much cotton it takes.

SteveA: That wasn't my video. I just posted it. Thanks for the compliment though. I've got about 20 more years of practice before I'm as good as Buck on authentic antique restoration upholstery. If you're interested, he's got a video on his youtube channel where he upholsters a chair that has a metal frame. Everything needs to be tied to the frame. That's a pain in the wrist.

Steve, you don't need to yell. We all hear you just fine. :-)

My friend found out that his family is racist. He started dating an Asian lady. As they realized that they really liked each other a lot, he took her home to introduce her to his family. The kids totally ignored her and his wife told him to pack his bags and get out.

Don't forget the thickness of the fabric can affect the size of the foot that you would want to use also. So I don't see a chart being the end of the discussion.

Thanks 65, but I think I'll pass. I can't stand sitting.

(Now that's funny!)

KodyD: A few customers told me last year that there are a few furniture makers starting up again here in the USA. They said there's a growing interest in quality furniture over IKEA type furniture.

Thanks for the chuckle.

I have a set of hypodermic needles that are used for gluing leg joints. You drill a hole into the joint and then use a needle to insect glue into the joint. All this without taking the joint apart.

I don't use this much because it's more like guess work than actually taking the joint apart, cleaning it, and re gluing.

Have you ever using these needles with the vinegar? I wonder if drilling a hole and injecting vinegar into the joint would speed things up?


Another topic with furniture legs is being able to remove skirts.

I've had a lot of chairs and sofas where the customer wanted the skirts removed. Making the feet look great now that they are exposed or replacing the feet with new ones gives this option to the customer.

I hope this has some info that you can use.


I've only done two rebuilds and the suction on my vacuum worked well.

Earlier this week I finally made a holster for my scissors. It fits on my belt and I have my scissors by my side all the time. I wish I had done this years ago.

Today I'm standing by my cutting table trying to remember where I put my scissors. I could not figure out where I left them. I know I used them to cut a string on a sofa I just finished. But where did I put them.

OH! Maybe they somehow fell in the garbage can??? And as I went to bend over to look in the garbage can, yes, I found them, snug as a bug in a rug, in my new scissor holster hanging on my belt.


The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Liability Insurance

State Farm has a nice commercial policy that fits my small business well. I was with Grange Insurance for about 10 years and their prices were up 3 straight years. I went with State Farm.

My lease on my shop requires me to have insurance.

Legal fees in a law suit can be a major expense and it's good to know that insurance will cover that, especially with so many nuisance and frivolous law suits.


I emailed this video to folks I talk to about stocks.

It's a joke in that being in ETFs I rarely look at the stock market.

"Downgrading a seat to ziggers is like taking a Cadillac (older one) and putting a VW engine it it."

Back when I was a teenager working at my first job, there was a guy who worked that that who had a Porsche that he put a VW engine in it. He got it with a blown engine and wrecked body. He fixed the body and put in the VW engine.

I can still see and hear that Porsche accelerating going down the alley behind the building. That was the weirdest thing.
