My compliments on your chair!
Should you do another chair bottom you might consider this approach. One the muslin is attached mark the centre point of the bottom of each side of the frame. Lay your fabric face down on a flat surface and place the seat upside down on the fabric. On one side line up the centre point of the pattern of the fabric with the centre point of the seat side and hammer in one tack. Repeat with the opposite side and then the two other sides. Next, on one side pull the fabric slightly toward the left seat corner and insert a tack an inch or so to the left of the centre tack. Repeat on the side opposite this. Do this on the side opposite and then on the other two sides. Repeat this process placing tacks on to the right of the original tacks.You should now have three tacks on each side of the seat frame with the fabric balanced and taught. Continue working towards the corners keeping the fabric taught and balanced. Fold in the corners and tack down. Now attach the covering.
l always enjoy finishing a project - especially when I have expert advise on how to do it.
I have been told that skill with sharpening provides a person with an opportunity to get better results in his/her work while at the same time giving a break to consider the next moves. Or contemplate the universe.
This is a book I can use!
A return to hand work serves a great need in these times of all things digital and mrchanical
Is there any decision yet on when an article on the making of the grooving planes will be available?
