The untrimmed Size is 15" Square. The overall Pattern Size is 12-1/2"diameter.
The suggested minimum trim size for this seat is 1 inch greater that the pattern size. Note that the embossed pattern is not always centered on the board. In some cases, the pattern is as much as 3/16" off center. These Chair Seats are made of a specially formulated fiberboard that will not separate. They can be trimmed with a pair of shears, tin snips or a band saw. They can be painted, stained, sealed, or used as is. As these boards take stain differently than wood, we recommend using a piece of trimmed scrap from the seat-board to test the results.
We suggest using our AB-3509 Nails for the installation of chair seats as they have small heads with a low dome. We also carry Decorative nails if you are looking for something more decorative. To determine the number of nails necessary, plan on using a least one nail every 1" to 1 1/2" apart. For example, a chair seat 13" in diameter using a 1 1/2" spacing would require 28 nails.
20% restocking fee will apply on all returned seats.
PLEASE NOTE: These fiber seats have small dark spots which is the result of the bonding material in the fiberboard being drawn out when heat pressing. Staining or painting the fiber seat covers the spots.
