The Upholstery Workshop

Ta-da!┬áMy workshop space is finally complete and I’m hoping that I can now put down the power tools an pick up the webbing stretcher.

I’ve not yet fully committed to a first project for 2012, although in a desperate attempt to find an excuse to spend some time in my new home I’ve started webbing the Adam style chair that I was going to complete last year. Perhaps this will be a nice one to do?

In the meantime, I’m keeping my hand in by doing a bit of rescue work for a friend who had a go at some seat pads. Unfortunately without the proper tools she found it quite hard and wasn’t happy with the results so I’ve stripped them back and re-worked them to soften the shape – here’s a little before and after…….

If you need me I’ll be in the shed with a cup of tea, radio 2 and a magnetic hammer.
