Are you sitting comfortably? In these two videos, Paul demonstrates how to prepare the upholstery for a wooden dining chair.
With all the materials prepared, Paul shows how to compress the foam using clamps. He then uses the stapler to fix the leather in place, making sure to stretch the leather evenly into position at each stage and showing how to tuck the corner to ensure a neat finish. One the excess it trimmed off the upholstery of the seat is complete.
For this method of upholstery, the first step is to cut a piece of plywood to fit into the recess with a small even gap around every side. He removes all the hard edges and bores the holes to allow air escape before cutting the foam to fit. With the prep done Paul cuts the leather to the approximate size.
