Default Re: Ingredients for six chairs

The slip seat (its called slip because it slips into the rebate) is held in place via the corner blocks. A bolt goes through each block and into the ply seat base.

Here's one of the upholstered seats. The material choice is not mine by the way

The trick with a slip seat is getting it to slip into the rebates firmly and consistently, without big gaps or wavy upholstery along the material-rebate line. It takes a little trial and error to get it right, depending on the foam and material used. Like I said before, I'm no upholsterer...
