Looks Great Steve.
I can’t wait to see the end result.
Padding attached to the frame using the James Cawley method, no side padding.
Fabric over the padding. Very pleased so far with the results.
Test fitting the corner.
That is spectacular. The end is very near!
Looking good! Now I want one, lol.
GOD that is a thing of beauty.
Great job Steve.
More test fitting of the bottom.edge being held in place with masking tape.
The goal for me is to get a tight sculpted look while bending the fabric to chair connection with a smooth transition. Very pleased so far. Picturea of more testing. …
Sweet stuff right there!!
Gorgeous! You’ve got to be pretty darned happy with that, the shape flows nicely with the overall form of the chair (perfectly). Thanks a million for documenting all this, Steve.
That is simply marvelous Steve.
That is fantastic Steve.
Could you take some photos of the fabric on the inside where you sewed it together?
Here you go. The sewing was the easiest step in making the chair.
Purchased the staples and Contact cement to finish the upholstery. Waiting for the paint to get here in the mail. Also will be working on attaching triangles this weekend.
Upholstery is Done! I just need to attach triangles and paint it now. I’m very pleased at how it came out!
Looks like a boomerange
And it fits nice and snug to the seatback too.
Very nicely done.
Is there anything that you don’t do well?
The key is not showing people your mistakes. Oh wait there is something I don’t do well, playing nice on the TPZ! LOL
Well, you’re playing very nice here.
Thanks for all the excellent build threads!
Thank you all for your kind comments! I thrive on challenge, making something from nothing is my kind of fun. I’ve just been sitting by the wood stove all afternoon staring at the chair. This was about a year in the making. It’s a great sense of accomplishment seeing the chair back done.
