Great job Chuck. What did you use for the finer leather?

Thanks Guys. It is somekind of fake leather that is from a skirt that I found at the thrift shop. I felt kind of creepy looking at it on the rack and taking it up to pay for it...but it was only like 50 cents and they understood when I told them it would match my heels and purse.

Got around to making the jump seat. Padding and skirt leather will bring it up to the hinges.

Lovely work Chuck. I also got some strange looks when I purchased a skirt or blouse that was just right for some upholstery!!!!
The coach is looking good, takes a long time but it's worth it in the end!

I love these folding seats, they look a lot like mine, what kind of wood was used?

Very nicely done! For people that complain about the lack of leg room on flights imagine sitting in one of these coaches in either the rear-facing row or the jump seat row and having to cross legs with folks sitting right in front of you!

Jose, It is American Beech.

Sam funny you say that. While building the backrest yesterday I was looking down into the coach and thought the same thing. Add to the cramped quarters the rough ride, smells, and dust. On the bright side they didn't have to go through security.

Default Backrest

Here's the backrest in the process of being built. It took more time to figure out how to make it then to make it. I would guess others would have made it a more simple way as I had different thoughts on how to do it. Drill holes in the end and epoxy the rod in was one way. I wanted to make sure it would not fall apart.
