In this video you will learn how to attach Synthetic Sagless to the bottom of the chair frame, and how to attach coil springs to the Synthetic Sagless using a Klinch-It Tool. I will show you how to use an edgewire and attach it to the frame and springs before finishing off the springs with an eight way tie.  I will also show you how I pad up the seat and hand sew an edgeroll to the edgewire frame. Next I will upholster the seat and attach a boxing strip with welt cord using a hand stitched method.  The inside back and arms will be padded and upholstered showing you how to add a decorative button detail to the inside back.  Lastly I will hand stitch the outside back before adding a decorative gimp to finish of the arms and back of the chair.
