Metalcraft fabricates all of our plywood & foam seats and backs one at a time. You give us the dimensions, custom modification choices, and the upholstery choices and we do the rest. Seat cushion comes with mounting hardware.
Plywood: We use a high-grade of solid hardwood 9-ply plywood that is 1/2” thick, cut it to your specifications, and install an abundance of 1/4-20 T-Nuts for mounting hardware and additional positioning devices.
Foam: For your custom seating project, we have choices of foam types with various firmness. See the drawings tab below and order form for foam information.
Upholstery: The seats and backs are covered in a variety of upholsteries. The contact surface is fabricated from the fabric and color you choose, the sides and bottom are always fabricated from vinyl that matches the color you request. See our upholstery chart below for a complete listing.
