    Upholsted furniture buisness for almost thirty as an upholsterer for ten

    The corner pleats
    You can do them differently
    Start as you did
    Pull down on the corner
    This will give you two pleats
    Roll the excess tight and pull the pleats straight down
    This would work best with a leg assembly that fits into the bottom best

    Made one of these about ten years ago for the mother in love who was using a plastic stepping stool to pro her her up in church and was having hip pain

    Made several more to sell
    Sold one
    Gave up. Lol
    People just don't appreciate craftsman compared to something that gonna fall apart in a few years.

    Using a air staple gun will make the Staples hold better as well

    Overall
    Props dude
    The legs look awesome
    And for your first shot at upholstery, did well!!

    Great project. I'm glad you did an upholstery project. I have never done anything like that but I was recently given a huge amount of upholstery fabric. I didn't know what to do with it but know I at least have an idea to play with. Also… LOVE the Domino I know not everyone has access to a tool like that. I know I don't. But I will one day. And I love seeing videos using it.

    So since you said this is experimental, would you say this is a "stool sample"? 😉 Nice project David. Your relationship with walnut continues I see. Looking forward to what happens next. . . <(")

    Awesome job, something that would make Gear and Pocket hole envious! 😉 I really like how the fabric and walnut go together!

    Great build…love the fabric and wood choices but why leave those silver screws exposed???…I would’ve cut some plugs from the scraps you cut off to make the angles and filled them in…I know it’s going under a desk but the finish looked so good on the walnut to have exposed screws!!..jmho…keep up the great work!!!

    I was impressed with you tackling upholstery, I think it will open the door to more projects. I was not a big fan of the leg placement on the stool. They looked like they were thrown on there. I always enjoy your videos and hope to see more upholstery projects.

    Gotta admit, the JoAnn friend thing was funny.
    And the music had a cool beat.
    I like the new shop too David.

    You have inspired me to upholster something as well. These are the types of projects that made me subscribe and watch religiously to your channel. Keep them coming

    Great project David! Beautiful upholstery job – I think it might look ever better with some mid-century style tapered legs? What do you think?

    If you tell me to "check it" one more time, I'm going to shave your beard and take you out for a nice fish dinner…

    I noticed that there was some dust coming out from the crosscut sled. To improve this, I simply remove the throat plate which seems to help tremendously. Great content!

    Hello David First of all: I really enjoy your videos just learning new stuff with every upload, and second: what is the use of the ''poly fill'(sorry if i misstype)?

    Cool project, pretty simple and it looks great

    So the way I cut off legs parallel with the top is just riding the top against the fence on my table saw. Works perfect. Just food for thought.

    David, can you briefly explain the advantages and disadvantages of the domino vs the old trusty biscuit. a video would be amazing but a few words would be greatly appreciated

    Tell me your statement of "My friend Joanne has a fabric store here in town" was in reference to the chain.  If you, well done.  Got a chuckle from me.

    JoAnn is making bank. Also I laughed a lot at that.

    Great prototype!

    Your next version should miter the front corners at 37 1/2° each, instead of one at 45 and one at 30. That way you don’t have any awkward trimming to do.
