When I was about 10 he came to visit us in Silver City NM. He was always looking for things to do. One time he made a new golf grip out of a piece of leather. We were mesmerized to watch him put it together. Another time he built an ottoman that matched the fabric on our davenport. And he used tacks and upholstery nails.
Much later, daughter Kelly decided to re-upholstery Queen Anne chair that we had in the upstairs bedroom. She used a staple gun to secure the seams.
Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago. I noticed my favorite Lazy Boy chair was a little wobbly.
In two places. So I decided to replace it and see if I could put it all back together again. I took a number of pictures so I could refer to them if I needed to 'retrace my steps' when I reassembled it.
I used a jigsaw for the corners then drilled small holes in the corners of the two square areas. The jigsaw blade fit into the holes and then I cut both areas out.
One thing that made the job pretty easy was this jewel which I picked it up at Harbor Freight. I plugged this into air compressor and ran the hose through the window and it worked great!
I carefully put the leather back in place over the board, stretched it and slowly got it done.
