Mock-up Next construct a mock-up of the channeled unit. It should have at least 3 full channels so that you can put it up to the frame and see how the completed unit will look. Measure the foam to determine the allowance for the face fabric. (Drawing 8). Fabric should be very snug to eliminate wrinkling. I get many emails each week asking for advice on upholstering that first piece of furniture. If you start small and gradually build up to more difficult pieces you will probably have less frustration and save money. Making the wrong cuts in your fabric, putting fabric on in the wrong order or choosing the wrong materials is costly.

A compressor has several uses in an upholstery shop, you will need it if you have a pneumatic staple gun, air glue sprayer and it also helps to clean up minor debris from carpet and headliner work. Siphon feed with a 1 quart pot is preferable so that you’re not wasting valuable time fixing clogs. A glue gun is a very low cost item you can. The following is an interesting opinion from Bernards Upholstery: Hello! Just happened to stumble onto your site here. Been in the Upholstery business for well over 30 years. I have had Magazines for our trade coming to me many times. All are about out of publication now. I took a glance at some of the discussion board's information.

Many consumers want to salvage antique furniture, repair damage from pets, or repurpose old furniture as a direct response to the consumer shift towards throw-away culture. As a result, an upholstery business can be successful, and it’s a business you can start part-time until you build up your client base enough to quit your day job. Upholstery User Review - thingey - I bought this book for a special person who is quite impressed with the amount of information contained within. It was an inspiration for the person to enroll in an upholstery class and redo a chair. Read full review5/5(2).

Take Up Upholstery Paperback – May 1, by Linda Flannery (Author), Jane McDonald (Author) See all 2 formats and editions Hide other formats and editionsAuthor: Linda Flannery, Jane McDonald.

For the beginner inspired to renovate, update, or restore an existing piece of upholstery, this new and practical guide, by prominent author David James (Upholstery: A Complete Course, Upholstery: Techniques & Projects) is the essential color-illustrated reference.

It contains everything a novice needs to know and covers all the basics: planning the project; buying /5(28).

In this second revised edition of Upholstery: A Complete Course, David James provides an encyclopedic guide to the techniques and materials involved in upholstery. The book covers everything from traditional handwork to the latest industrial techniques, giving a complete overview of the upholstery trade/5(17).

Whether you’re an experienced upholsterer or you’re just getting started, upholstery books can be an excellent resource to help you develop new skills or keep your older skills sharp. From automotive upholstery to starting an upholstery business, we have a wide selection of upholstery books to help you get the most out of your next upholstery project.

In The Complete Guide to Upholstery, the step-by-step photos are clear and have detailed captions (the pictorial sections on Vandyking and Deep Buttoning alone are worth the cost of the book to me) and cover a wide array of furniture types and applications/5(33).

Really, really detailed instructions for the beginning covering planning, purchasing materials, and techniques for reupholstery. This book provides all the background information for getting the project up and running while Complete Step-by-Step Upholstery offers more pictures and more furniture projects.

The two books complement each other/5. For the experienced or intermediate upholsterer, this book is ideal and will help you take your skills to a top-notch level, but for beginners it will make you feel that all your successes up to this point have been failures, and this is not a feeling a book that describes itself as ‘the only book you’ll need to learn the craft and art of upholstery from start to finish’ should project/5.

This book does cover the basics of doing upholstery work. Beginning chapters teach you how to seam, make curves etc. Basic seat covers with additional tips for more modern seats. It also covers tops, headliners, door panels and are also chapters on making boat seats, motorcycle seats and van interiors and more/5().

With nearly 50 years of experience in the craft and a firm commitment to seeing the industry grow, Fred is the perfect person to write a book about auto upholstery. Reupholstering a sofa is not really hard; it only requires a responsible attitude and following certain rules from Tom Silver’s book.

His woodworking guide can make you a skillful master in changing the old furniture upholstery for the new one. The manual is full of useful advice and competent illustrations. Upholstery as a profession is not for everyone, and it’s a good deal more than the fun artsy aspects you see on social media (hooray!) So before you quit your day job, I’m here to give you an insider’s take on upholstery as a full time career – what to consider before you take the plunge, and how to proceed once you’re sure.

I have a book called Custom Auto Interiors by Don Taylor and Ron Mangus, and it is by far the best upholstery book I have ever read. I DEFINATELY reccomend picking it up. And, if you have some extra cash, my 2nd choice would be the Automotive Upholstery Handbook by Don Taylor.

Hope This Helps. Take up Upholstery is designed to introduce you in easy stages to the basic techniques of upholstery, it also contains projects to make as you go along, including a stool, headboard, screen, chairs and even a chaise longue.

My postal chairs are featured in a real, hardcover, done-by-a-professional book about upholstery.

Months ago I received in email from England. Someone had stumbled unto my postal chairs (remember version one and version two) and asked if I would be willing to send over some extra images and some information and then they might end up in a book.
