65  The chair looks good. You can hide some of the extra at the front corners with a base welt. But what I am seeing is the side boxing tapered down to the front. I other words it should have been straight all the way back making the top welt parallel to the bottom frame. This would be proper and would have taken out the little extra fabric in the front corner. You will get away with it though. Remember this. Seating should always make a person lean back naturally never forward. So it anything the front of a seat would be higher than the back of the seat.

That is a great job. Matching the horizontal x's on the sides of the back to the back in and back out panels is a very nice detail. It's amazing how often new furniture doesn't even make the effort to do that.

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.

Too late to change your name. You'll always be known as 65. :)

All you can do is quit the group, and re-register with a new profile name.

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.
