This I made when getting my upholstery certificate. My wife loves this chair and I have received many compliments on it. It has a maple and hickory frame and the queen anne legs are maple with a shellac finish.

So what is involved in getting an upholstery certificate? I’m just amazed at what you guys do.

The hardest part MsDebbieP has to be the cushion. I hate doing cushions. Cushions I find tough because you have so much material to work with in such a small area it gets frustrating working it on the sewing machine. Like anything though I take my time and relax when doing cushions and it all works out in the end.

Dennis for me to get my upholstery certificate I had to take a night class twice a week for four years. You learn how to upholster, reupholster, use a commercial sewing machine and many other tricks of the trade. The problem is, that upholstery is a dying trade. There are only four schools left in Canada that offer certification in upholstery.

Thanks Kevin. It sounds like top notch training. I’ve a good friend who in an upholsterer and getting training was his biggest challenge. He started working in a shop doing grunt work till he couldn’t stand it any more. Then just studied videos and books. It is an art.

I’m totally impressed. I also do upholstery but have no certificate. Unlike you though I don’t find the cushions hard. My hardest part is the arms. You did a great job.
