Default poker table chairs

I got 10 of these chairs for free from a friend.









I want to have them better match up with my table, so I decided to remodel them with cloth backs and seats and encase the steel frame in walnut. At first, I didn't like that protruding edge along the upper part of the chair. Then I came up with an idea to use it to my advantage.

Project was started redoing the seats and back; I decided to cushion them. Luckily, I saved the foam from my poker table build; it was enough for several of the seats. Extra foam was gotten from JoAnn's.





The foam was spray glued to the vinyl, then covered with cloth and stapled down. Excess cloth was trimmed off afterwards.



The finished products:







All ten seats are done; two of the backs are done. In keeping with my theme of using red and blue card decks for my games, I went with red and blue suited speedcloth. The upholstering didn't turn out too bad, imo. I'll work on 5 chairs at a time; first the red set, then the blue set.



I plugged the legs with a piece of wood, as I intend to use casters on the chairs. The wood was formed to fit tightly and gorilla-glued into place; a slightly undersized pilot hole was drilled first before inserting the piece.

They call me the jigmeister at the woodworking club. A sample of the many jigs I'll be using to manufacture the chairs.



These two took a long time to make, but will be worth the effort. They keep the rear pieces parallel to each other and tight against the back rest while the rear portion of the chair is being assembled.



Dry fitting now.







Some of the legs have gotten bent out of position over time. I'm going to have to bend them back into place before assembling each chair.

Very nice, looks great.

That's quite a shop by the way, is that your own personal shop?

This. It somewhat pains me to see all that effort go into those chairs, and then know that they're metal inside.
