We recently bought a 3 seater sofa from a thrift store and I'm currently trying to restore it.
It had fiberboard supporting the seats, but when I removed those some gutters were exposed. I assume the gutters were used for the original webbing but in the past someone replaced them with the fiberwood.
I'd like to restore that webbing, but what do I use for it? Steel wire? Elastic wire? Something special? How did they do it in the 50's/60's?
