Interior ?'s

Ok first of all, i've got all the panels made, and just have to recover,, I recovered a few pieces today, and this brought a few questions...

1. how do you wrap the corners with out shoing a lil buldge, and what about if your wrapping the inner edge of a 90 degree panel.. there's not enough material to cover the center after it's cut.. check my pics to see what I mean.

2. I'm at a loss for what materials to use.. I have some samples from keyston. I'm doing these panels with their rave.. seems to be fine, I think it's their version of immitation leather.. But I have samples of their soft side collection,, which i like cause there are many different options, but it's vinyl and not sure it it'll work.. have their allamanti selection.. not sure if it's spelled right.. and considered real leather but believe it's really expensive.. any suggestions here would be great.

3. of materials selected what can you get away with using on a seat cover

4. what methods are used for cutting the pvc board.. we used a utility knife and exacto knife.. can you use wood working equipment to cut such as radial arm saw, skill saw, etc.

thanks very much in advance...

Upholsery panels

Chad,

When you finish those outside corners and angles, after you have glued the front side,you need to bring the fabric or vinyl over, and around to the back before you glue it, and see where you need to cut it so it lays flatter. Make sure you have some fabric from each angle though, or it wont stay tight. It would be like cutting out pie pieces, to get a good fit. Do not cut the fabric all the way down to panel board, Cut it about 1/8" away. For the inside 90 degree if your using a good stretchable vinyl cut it down to about 1/4" from board and slowly glue it down, If you have a heat gun you may try that to soften it up some to stretch around so you don't see cut, but don"t burn it . Hope this helps Tom Werner Upholstery

well as far as the outter edges goes that's basically what we were trying for, but at the same time trying to keep some material there.. i think I just need to practice at it.. i'm trying to make it so you can't seen anything overlapping from anywhere on the outside corner.. i might try heating this also.. as far as the inside goes.. i'm gonna just try to warm it up and work it in.. but the thing i'm worried about is it not holding.. even if i can get the corner covered, will it stay??? that has me a little worried..

Use Weldwood DAP glue. put on both the vinyl and board let dry. Then put on one side again wait till its real tacky and press together. works great for me . TOM
