    here is a very small taste of how i earn my cp money,

    Ive been upholstering for a living now for about 18 years, 7 of which I've been running my own small shop, consisting of me and a couple part timer helpers, though i do every operation including the sewing, and some small construction on such things as cornice boards for windows, custom storage ottomans, and custom covered headboards.
    these are the only two videos i have left of this chair, if any interest is there, i can do another few Videos of an entire job from start to finish.
    if any one has an small project they are thinking of taking on ,that involves upholstery work i may be able to talk/type you through it please forgive the rambling instruction, it is just my outloud thoughts as im trying not to be shy in front of the camera

    few more finished projects, the cornice looks a little warped had to do a double shot and splicing them together , this is a custom built window treatment, but not of my liking, just showing a sample of my work you see.
    my favorite is the antiques, love the feeling of saving grandmas chair, and how happy people are to see it like new again this is also where i get my screen name uphwiz (upholstery wizz )

    Awesome!
    Yeah, idk, I don't have the kind of skill you do, or the patience, lol, but watching others work has always fascinated me.
    Very nice stuff you've done!!
