Fiber Seat Instruction

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.
