The suggested minimum trim size for this seat is 1 inch greater than the pattern size. Note that the embossed patten 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 recomment using a scrap piece of seatboard to test the results.We also carry Decorative Nails. To determine the number of nails necessary, plan on using one nail every 3/4" to 1 1/2". For example, a chair seat 13" in diameter using a 1 1/2" spacing would require 28 nails.
