I get a fair amount of this kind of woodworking- remaking a wiped out part of something. This time it was the two sides of the seats in a jet boat. I had one “good” side to work with and had to also make an opposite hand for the other side. Angles and radii were the key players in this duplication. These had to be upholstered from here.

I used 3/4” and 1/4” mahogany plywood for the structure. It should last much longer than the original.

Correct me if I am wrong but it they look like the making of front seats for an open bow. You said jet boat, more details please.

Hi Straightpiped. you’re right. They are for the bow of a jet boat. I’ve never seeen the boat, however- just the rotted away seat frames. The owner said they fit real well and he had them upholstered…...........Jim
