Tack-Hammer Tack-Hammer – Pass the Brass!

A quiet but steady week of hammering!

Tacked down the seat covers so they are now ready for some brass decorative nails. There are many different designs and sizes of decorative nails, so after lots of searching I went for these ‘daisy dome’ nails, I thought they would compliment the chair and the fabric.

Before I get down to hammering the nails (which is no easy job with oak), I’ve been working on the back rest; covered the backside, filled out the middle using cotton felt, a layer of scim wadding and then this is all held together with a calico layer.

The backrest is now ready for the top cover – this will be fixed down with the decorative nails directly.

Next job,  will be getting the brass nails in, this will require some patience and precision…

It’s all getting very close to finishing – a full set of six chairs, the only thing is… I’ll have to find a table to compliment them!
