Not too long ago my daughter made a great dumpster dive find in a teak Scan chair. She took it to her apt and eventually the plywood in the upholstered seat succumbed to dry rot and disintergrated. She brought it home asking if I could repair the chair. Instead of trying to copy what it had on, a upholsterd seat on a curved laminated piece of plywood I decided to try my first seat carving. To give you a visual of what I’m describing here is the end result:
Anyway, my question is this: After carving out the seat with an angle grinder and different grades of grinding discs (I used the Holey Galahad wheels) I was left with a seat that required a lot of hand work in smoothing and sanding.
I will not use a random orbit sander on a shaped seat. I don’t want to round over the pad on it’s outer edges. Can anybody recommend a sanding disk attachment that I can use with my drill to speed up the process.
