The course examines the tools, materials, and basic principles used in reupholstering furniture. Techniques involved in using equipment, dismantling furniture, constructing the foundation, making the muslin cover, planning and preparing the platform and covering, and attaching loose wood panels are some of the operations dealt with in the course. The vocational, as well as home, use of these skills is explored. Available to all high school seniors, it is recommended that Wood Finishing, Industrial Arts--5874.04 be considered as an extension of the course. The guide is organized according to behavioral goals with instructional material coordinated under the headings: suggested content ideas, learning opportunities, and resources. The 36-page appendix offers illustrations of each step in the upholstering process, a guide to upholstery equipment, and other procedural guidelines. (Author/MW)
