Just finished up 4 side chairs - repair - re-glue - touch up - pad and recover seats.  They gave me one yard of fabric and said do it however you think it looks best -
Generation ....who the hell knows what they are thinking !

Don't think you can get 4 out of a yard.

Paul maybe it was a yard plus - not much more if any.  I didn't measure other than to put a seat on top of one quadrant when I picked up the chairs and I had pull. The fabric was folded in half and half again so there were 4 squares that seemed to be enough without measuring - the slip seats were small
The pattern another story - 4 different images -

1930's table - John Stuart Co.  Strong joinery, carved and pierced elements, all mahogany, bookmatched crotch veneer top. . Refinishing the top center only.  Already sanded and stained.  Today some finish. Sealer than clear - The worst part taping off the gallery to keep the spray off

Maybe its just me Steve, but the last 3 photos you linked are very fuzzy. Likely photobucket is up to tricks again.
There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

You're right - photo bucket is terrible - un-focusing the pictures - I'll try google

The customer wanted to stain the cherry side chairs darker to match their Kitchen set with the arms - I tried to talk him out of it but no luck.  The arm chair was beech and the side chairs cherry.  Had to strip and bleach the cherry wood side chairs to kill the red.  A wash coat of raw umber to further kill red.  A dark gray stain, than sealed, a chalky black glaze, 4 coats of lacquer.  Too much trouble trying to match the color with different woods. Glad this one is done.  Clean up the shop and have a beer now

Ethan Allen side chair - back post broken.  Added a dowel and reglued everything.  Had to dig out the wood plugs to get to the screws - the hardest part will be trying to match the color for the new plugs the stain done with tinted translucent undercoat and burnt umber glaze.
