Before
This puffy channel back needs to go away!
Frame
Down to the bare frame to repair weak joints and remove the curved pieces from the upper back. This will create a sleek silhouette.
Retying sprung seat
A sprung seat requires a lot of hand work: tacking the base webbing, attaching the springs, and tying them together four ways: vertically, horizontally, and diagonally going left and right.
Legs
The show wood (the part of the wood frame that "shows") was in very nice condition to begin with and only required a little touch up.
Edge roll
The edge roll defines the seat's shape and serves as a foundation for building up a horsehair seat.
Stuffing
The original seat had a mash up of cotton batting and wood shavings - not salvageable. I opted to replace with a traditional horsehair seat.
