Fiber seats may be trimmed to size with a utility knife, heavy-duty shears, tin snips or band -saw. It is
important to determine the size and shape you desire. You can use the old seat from your chair if available or make a paper pattern. Center your pattern on the design in the center of your
seat and mark it on the bottom side. DO NOT center your pattern from the outer edge of the seat, (overall size may vary slightly). After trimming the edges it may be sanded
smooth with sandpaper.
A good method of securing fiber seats to your chair is with upholstery nails or tacks. Space tacks evenly
around the outer 1/2 inch of seat. Another method would be using contact cement.
Fiber seats can be finished natural, stained or painted. To
determine the finish you want, experiment with a scrap from the bottom of your seat. You can use a dark stain then wipe quickly and finish with the rest of the chair. The stain will stay in the background (lower portions) of the seat and the quick wipe will lighten the raised portions of the design. Leather resolene will put a protective coat on the seat.
Fiber seats are tough no special care needed.
Benches, chairs, stools, new construction are other uses for fiber replacement seats
