use ultra suede, I really liked my results with it ez to work with just give yourself a lil more on each end being wraped cuz it dont really stretch. take your time I kno sometimes it feels like it wont ever finish but in the end you want it to look like nuthin needs fixing everythin is perfect

about the loveseat build,yes you can screw into the body just be careful you don't screw into any electrical ,or any gas lines,fuel tank ,etc...on your bends it's better to use 1/4 inch wood so ,it will bend easier.cut your bend pieces,and soak 'em in water about 15 min give or take, to prevent them from breaking ..use a dense foam ,the softer the faster it will wear in and you will be sittin on wood .the dense foam is also better for hand tucking ..keeps it's shape better.crush velvet is good,velour is better ,because it wont fade as quickly as crush..well, hope this info helps ...

If you have access to a decent table saw it is easier to take a 1/2" piece of wood and kerf it (a series of cuts that go about three quarters of the way through the wood, but not all the way) where you want the wood to bed, and then just bend it. Doing it this way will prevent any future issues from soaking the wood in water first. Just a helpful little hint! :biggrin: ;)
