I have noticed lately that there is a large interest in doing repairs to Danish paper cord seats. I have seen a lot of before and after photos but not much to really explain some of the finer points. Here are just a couple of pointers for those that are looking to do this on their own that you might find helpful.
First choose the right tools. Here is my standard tool kit: short shuttle (14″ x 1 1/2″), long Shuttle, scissors, flat tip screw driver, tacks (#6, 1/2″), tack hammer, 12″ &, 6″ rules. Also you must have a spring clamp like the green one you see in the second photo.
