Building canoe seats (part 2)
March 22, 2011 § 2 Comments
I left off part one having built the canoe seat frames. The nylon webbing finally arrived, so I was able to finish the job (hence the part 2 now).
After the joints had cured, I routered the edges off and varnished. The seat frame is now ready for some nylon mesh.
I plotted the location of the strap on the seat frame and then cut the strap to length and stapled one end into place.
Then, using a lever (the use of which is nicely shown in a video here), I added tension to the strap.
A bit of stapling, weaving, stretching, and more stapling later, I have some nice canoe seats.
