I am in the process of re-upholstering some furniture in the house. Some of the sites I am following is this http://www.todayshomeowner.com/home...fing-upholstery-foam-batting-and-animal-hair/ and http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Reupholster-A-Chair-1/step15/Dont-Give-Up-Finish-That-Chair/ What I am wondering is this re Upholstering process just replaces the outer layer fabric. I have an item that not only the old outer fabric smells but the cotton or foam based material smells bad or is old to. Is there anyway to get not only the fabric but also replace the internal material as well? I know this is almost getting to the point where you can buy new furniture (probably for less haven't research that yet) or make furniture from scratch but I still am curious if anybody out there has done this at this level. (I am sure there are not sure about on this site though) Question 2 I am wonder also how much of the furniture we buy at the stores are made from scratch/by hand. And the non-made by hand ones how much human intervention does it take to create furniture ? Is there a youtube clip or something out there that shows you the whole process of mass producing furniture items like beds , couches , footons , recliner chairs , tables ,...etc. I am assuming there is not one machine makes all and there is some human intervention between moving things from machine to machine.
