I’ll see how this all comes together in 24-48 hours from now…
I used many cuss words getting this together – and had to scream for help with the clamp positioning. You can never had enough clamps – as you can see I was reduced to using my crappy craftsman standby clamp.
I don’t think the stretchers are going to hold well through time. They just “feel” weak. For other chairs, I might add more wood to them. Not sure yet.
After the glue up, I ran a damp cloth around the squeeze out and I think I got most of it. I noticed I have a few spots to retouch with color – which will be easy. Now I have to find a place that sells the right leather to start the re-upholstering.
