I decided to separate this from my other thread, which was intended to be purely about sourcing the webbing/clips.
I have a Mogens Kold chair which I purchased in rather rough shape. At the time of purchase, the original webbing was long gone and in its place, someone had poorly stapled jute webbing (for what appeared to be the second time). Needless to say, I did not have a good reference point as to how the original webbing might have been fixtured. What was clear was that it utilized tapered slots, ran front to back, and was probably 38mm Pirelli webbing.
My thinking had been that the Mogens Kold utilized 90 degree metal clips which fit vertically into the slots; however, after seeing this photo online of an identical chair, I'm thinking the tapered slot might have been used to create a wedge. I've attached a rough sketch which captures this latest thinking.
Has anyone seen a manufacturer wedge webbing in place like this? Either with a dowel or piece of wood? It seems less than ideal, but still plausible.
Thanks in advance for any input.
