« Part 16: Ford Hot Rod C-Cab Van Part 17 of Hot Rod FORDS series Part 18: Rear Mudguards/Fenders »

Today has been productive making a set of custom Walnut Armchair Quilted Seats along with a Blackheart Sassafras Consol.

First was to cut 1/2” square strips of the Walnut then round two edges through the 1/8” roundover bit in the router.
Cut the seat base and back to length before gluing four together.
The back and base are glued together at about 4deg with a 7/16” thick seat support base added underneath.
Finally the headrest, side supports, arm and knee cushion are glued in place.
The whole seats will have a final sand once the glue fully sets.

You guys are getting too bloody clever with seats… Is it padded?

The padding is under one’s derrière some having more cushioning than others!

They look comfy. And it appears you’ve managed to keep Handy from “testing” the seats, too? Well done, Peter!
