Hope you tripled your bid after they changed it from square to radius corners. Even 5x isn't really out of line. So far it looks good. I have used wacky wood on several occasion. Only problem I find with it is it telegraphs what is below to the surface.

I guess I'm just a cautious old fart, I wouldn't come within 10 feet of that thing on wheels.

Re: Bending Plywood On Interior Radius


Had a rough day and tomorrow ain't gonna be no better. Got a parking ticket, 6-10" of snow tomorrow, forgot one stupid little piece to the seats....oh well, such is life.

I thought this was such a cool looking thing, I put all 3 of them together, looks like a teacup.



Here it is, all segmented off so the upholsterer can come pick it up. I didn't feel very good about doing so many seams, but what's a guy to do?

The 1" gap is for the upholsterer to wrap his stuff around the edges. That's not my tape measure...honest.

YOU THE FINNISHMAN, Famerman

Well thought out

Well laid out executed very cleanly and very quick I might add.

I can't decide weather I like it better than that starter step on the seaside deck

Two of my favorite things I have seen on this site

Keep asking for what you want. You obviously are good at creating it.

Re: Bending Plywood On Interior Radius


Believe it or not, they have finally been upholstered.

Just one question.....what do you think about the end product?

I asked the client if he liked what he had and he said "not really" and after some prodding, which I already knew why, the upholstery is IMO a pile of manure.

Maybe I have no idea about upholstery, but this seems to have been done poorly. You can grab it and have a big fistful of loose material in your hand. The corners that are tucked under, there's pockets you can stick your whole hand in. In a bar situation, how well do you think this is going to be? I can see peanuts, straws, cherries, gum, boogers.....

And the curved back thickness doesn't even come close to the straight back thickness. There are gigantic holes you can put your whole hand down into the seat where two cushions meet.

You can see in the first picture that staples are on the SIDE of the seat. I don't care if it's the middle seat, staples don't go there.

The backs were to get 4" foam on the bottom part of the back and 2" on the top, making the seat backs more sloped. I think the guy reversed it. These are almost straight up and down now.

Just sad to see this. I don't know anything about upholstery, but I sure could have given these guys a much better end product. We all agreed not to secure this, the clients will talk with the upholsterer and go from there. I have a bad feeling about the answer.

Re: Bending Plywood On Interior Radius


what a mess

No way would I keep my opinion to myself about that.

Man I hate to see crappy work in, on or around mine.

"Get that garbage out of here" I may be heard saying.

Sorry to see that Kent. I know how much pride you put into the frame.

I'm careful not to say it out loud first before the other guy says he doesn't like it. I've stuck my foot in my mouth more than once.

OUCH! What's the opposite of putting a dress on a pig? I have just toyed with upholstery, and my attempts are way better than that...I know you can get arrested for impersonating a cop, what about an upholsterer???

You have a bright future in this business young man.

You obviously possess much more wisdom and self restraint than I.

It wasn't a pig. It was a work of art.

WTF is that the upholsterer going to do about that?

Re: Bending Plywood On Interior Radius


I said opposite.....frame was dress, therefore upholstery was pig. Unless you object to my saying the upholstery was slop. It's obvious to me that framerman has pride as evidenced by his work. Just a drag that the "upholsterer" does not feel the same encumbrance.....

I was a little confused by what you said too, but I know what you meant. WOTSP , In this case, the dress (because it covers up the work of art) is the pig! That's sad.

The upholsterer had a chance to create a masterpiece that would have made his portfolio. He created a "piece" alright. What a shame.
