In this Channel Back Chair upholstery video tutorial you will see the steps I have taken to reupholster this chair. We will begin with creating and attaching the T-Deck in parts one and two.

The next two videos will show the inside arms from padding to fabric. We then move on to sewing the channels for the inside back. Once this is attached we move on to making and attaching the buttons before we move onto closing up the outsides. I will be making and attaching a double welt cord as a final decorative detail before we attach the dust cover and sew the cushion.

This upholstery project has 14 individual videos and a running time of 4 hours 45 minutes.
