Please note when comparing to other tuffet kits on the market –
The wood supplied with these kits is thick 3/4″ plywood. Other kits on the market use MDF. Plywood is much stronger than MDF.
Other kits on the market may not include the installation of t-nuts. The Willow & Pepperpot kits have t-nuts installed. Also, the t-nuts used are twice the length of t-nuts used on other kits on the market. They are 3/4″ long so they are the same thickness as the plywood. This is important when the tuffet has been constructed, and the feet are being attached. The extra length t-nut enables the feet to be easily screwed into place as the hanger bolt in the foot threads onto the extra long t-nut with ease.
Good quality medium density upholstery foam is hand-cut with a bevel to give the tuffet it’s distinctive and stylish shape.
The button supplied is an extra large 2 1/2″ domed Dritz self cover button. The button is fantastic quality and will not dent, as other cheaper buttons may do.
The kits are supplied with fire retardant upholstery wadding, which is a 9 oz weight and 1 inch thickness. The fire retardant qualities of this wadding help the tuffet to adhere to fire safety standards. Also, upholstery wadding is more robust than ordinary craft wadding, and will not tear or loose fibres, and will give a great finished shape to your tuffet that will be maintained for years to come.
The gathering cord supplied is like that used for roman blinds. It is great quality, and will not snap.
