Hi, this may be my 3rd project based on the z-chair but I feel like I have learnt a lot of new techniques for this chair that i wanted to share.

I find that looking at how people have solved their problems really spurs your own ideas on how to solve yours even though it may not be directly related. This really helped me out especially for the curved arms for this project as I wouldn’t have got the commission without being able to do it and getting ideas from multiple people blogs and projects.

Anyway I have created a somewhat detailed picture blog on how to make a z-chair step by step. Hope it keeps you entertained for a few minutes. Always a great community I have found here. Even if I’m from he Uk. :)

Did good on this chair! LOL!

I’m wondering about the webbing? I had the great idea to use the material used in ratcheting and banding. Used it on my wooden frame of a sofa rehab. After about a year of use in my office( once or twice a week) for a 3 hour day the webbing has stretched and the cushions tend to sag. Is your webbing strong?

Thank you!
I suppose it is not designed to be used in that way, I think it wouldn’t stretch and go back like elastic, it would just stretch and keep stretching and not going back to its original form. The webbing I’m using is elasticated and you really pull it tight when putting it on. Its designed for chairs seats.
