Figuring Shaker Tape Yardage Needed for Seats
Dyed Reed Charts

Figuring the approximate amount of Shaker tape yardage needed for seats:

  1. Width x Depth=  ?  Inches
      (Measure at widest points.)
  2. For 5/8" tape:   ?  Inches ÷ 5.3
      For 1" tape:   ?  Inches ÷ 9
  3. Answer = number of yards needed
    (Avg. 15" x 18" seat = 52 yds. of 5/8" or 30 yds. of 1")
  4. Two color seat: Answer ÷ 2 = yardage of each color needed

Remember, this is only an approximating tool. It is best to order more than what is needed because chairs and dye lots can vary.
