- Do it your selvers
In order not to get long silences between some spoken words from me, I treat you to some tunes.
Because the foam on this chair is 4 centimeter thick, it can be handy to apply cotton first. This HR 40 foam is firm and makes it harder to fold at the edges and therefor you might get more dents and bumps at first. The cotton makes it easier later on with the final upholstery fabric. Plus in some countries the fire regulation are quite strict and if the upholstery fabric is not fire retardant you might need to use crib5 interliner first.
As there are so many types of tubular chairs it is almost impossible to make a course of them all. This backrest is part of the Gispen Cirrus model and is fastened with clasps. We have made a separate course on this model as it is very specific. Enclosed the link to this course which is also on Udemy.
Some tubular chairs are fastened with poprivets. Especially the ones which are not upholstered. Here is a video how to tackle poprivets. This chair has them on the inside backrest and not from the back of the frame. But the Principe is the same.
Have you always wondered what those rings are with which, for example, a chair seat is attached? Well those are poprivets. If you want to get the wooden seat loose, you will first have to drill the pop rivets with a metal drill. You have hand rivet pliers, but also on air. In the video, I show you how a pneumatic popriveter works.
