Two chairs in for reupholstery

The chairs small curved channel backs without arms,  tight seat on "newer coils" - at first I thought "old".  But on inspection, it became apparent that they were imported partially complete and finished up in
domestic land.  In reading, some of that is going on to reduce tariff in a lot of industries.

The frames actually had glued joinery. 

I suppose the final assembly of previously sewn upholstery could have been installed after

Always something new isn't it!



Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife. Tearfully she explained, "It's the pharmacist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone".
Immediately the husband drove downtown to confront the pharmacist and demand an apology.
Before he could say more than a few words, the druggist told him, "Now, just a minute, please listen to my side of it...
This morning the alarm failed to go off, so I was late getting up. I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car, just to realize that I locked the house with both house and car keys inside. I had to break a window to get my keys. Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket."
He continued, "Later, about three blocks from the store, I had a flat tire. When I got to the store there was a bunch of people waiting for me to open up. I opened and started waiting on these people, and all the time the darn phone was ringing off the hook."
He continued, "Then I had to break a roll of nickels against the cash register drawer to make change, and they spilled all over the floor. I got down on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels; the phone was still ringing. When I came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer, which made me stagger back against a showcase with bunch of perfume bottles on it...all of them hit the floor and broke.
Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up, and I finally got to answer it. It was your wife. She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer...and, honest mister, all I did was tell her!"


Got these chairs covered and what was interesting - no foam!  Anywhere.

The chairs were almost 20 years old but cotton was used in forming the channel backs, Coils were
the springs.  The frames (I think foreign made), looked cheap in areas but was wood.

Always something different!
