- Learn Upholstery by Video - 

Hello, my name is Merv Knutson. The past 40 years of my life have been devoted to the Art of Re-Upholstery.
Now, with my three extensive step-by-step training videos, you too can learn the art, tricks, and know-how of the Upholstery trade. You will discover the secrets that will not only make your work easier, but will help you to achieve a quality to your finished product that will generate word-of-mouth referrals from your satisfied clients. My three informative videos are designed to educate and demonstrate. They are worth their weight in gold!! 
There isn't an occupation in this world that can be truly successful without tools. MERV'S TRAINING VIDEOS provide you with these tools, as well as expert advice to do a professional job you can be proud of. 

Video #1: Upholstery Training

Video #4 Curved Back Bar Stools

Merv demonstrates two different methods to upholster curved back and water fall bar stools.  From tear down, straight through pattern making and covering.

Please take note that all my videos are taped in the extended play mode. Video #1 has 6 hours of quality instruction. The EPM slightly impairs the resolution, however it is like getting three videos for the price of one! 

All my videos are indexed, for easy reference. The topic with a number is on the video box as well as on the face of the tape. 

Example: A003-25-39- at 3 hours 25 minutes & 39 seconds the topic (curve front chair deck) listed will appear on the video so you can easily locate what you want to see, when you want to see it.
