The Laz-boy items I am doing now are amazing items to do when studying their technology used
compared to my shop technology.

This furniture is about 20 years old (+-), but during all the phases I have gone through (tear down,
patterning, cutting & sewing, the main things noticed are their equipment is a few steps advanced
to mine. 

They are in the digital patterning world - the cutting & sewing processes - and overall work so far ahead
of me it becomes a spectacular experience to follow such.

They utilize differential feed on all most every seam to achieve certain effects - very humbling to say
the least.

One important thing rises in my mind - how are upholsters going to be able to cope with these differences in "small shop work" v/s their "factory capabilities?  Don't forget, the technology used by
Laz-boy is probably over 20 years old.  That factory capability noted-- leads my thinking about what their current technology has to offer?  Plenty more I am sure.

More digital services and capabilities I am sure!
