I appreciate the kind reply. And nice website by the way. Too bad your so far away. I would almost volunteer to assist in table repair to learn table mechanics.
I will say that the folks that installed my table table did poor pocket work compared to some of the pocket work I have seen since looking at these forums. They cut some them short in v notches leaving exposed table at the edges with no backing. One reason why I like to do things myself.
According to your website that how you got started in table mechanics do to poor workmanship quality. So you start by doing the repair yourself.
I don't mind buying tools to do self help type work.
I give your trade a a lot of credit on techniques you have developed over many years of experience and don't want to share. One cannot appreciate it the level of difficulty and the tools required to it professionally until they have tried. It look simple, angles folds, tension etc. I never would of thought any of that until reading these forums.
Anyway, again thanks for the kind reply. Best wishes, happy holidays.
By the way AH sent me enough cushions and facings to do 2 tables. They were made by MBS I think was the tag on the new cushions.
