In this Channel Back Chair video you will learn the several skills. The project involves adding a riser board before upholstering and padding the deck. You will see how I upholstered and padding the inside arms with decorative wood fronts.

I have created 8 equal size channels referring to the old channels for measurements. The two outer channels were creating by attaching them to the frame behind the decorative wood detailing. When closing up the outside arms and wing area I will show you how to plan for a perfect pattern matching detail. We will than close up the outside back before moving onto adding decorative gimp. Once our chair body is finished we will sew a boxed cushion finish our chair with a dust cover.

This Channel Back Chair is a bit more of an advanced upholstery project.
