I replaced my lousy OEM foam with "superfoam" from a local shop, Oklahoma Upholstery Supply, Fabrics by OUS-Wholesale upholstery fabrics and supplies for home and office furniture and they cut it to my specs while I waited. They do ship the stuff, but no idea how much that costs.

"Superfoam" is quite dense and firm. Good to sit on, but not necessarily needed for back cushions, and makes a very firm bed. Their next step down in denseness and price was called "tulsafoam" (go figure).

We bought foam from a local shop that specializes in boat cushions and marine upholstery. The advantage was that he had nice big pieces that we could lie and sit down on to test for firmness. He also wrapped the cushions in a nice soft fiberfill batting for an additional small charge. That means that the slipcovers, which I'm sewing, will fit nice and tight and look more professional.

On making my own covers and I'm sure many of you know that wrapping the cushions with batting is a must. From YouTube we learned how to put the cushions into the cover without a hassle. Bag it, use vacuum to suck the air out which shrinks the foam, place in cover, release, and tear the bag out. Makes it so easy.

Mike, thanks so much for that link. I didn't know about that place.

Next time I am in Tulsa I'll have some measurements and visit the place, probably in November as I like to come down and get pecans. Bet the pecan harvest 2012 was pretty poor. We didn't come then.

Spoke to my local Dry Cleaner. He said it will not be a problem for him to clean the seat cushions and the covers! Just got to get the zippers replaced on some of them now. Going to take it to a regular upholstery shop next week. I will post pictures of the before and after and tell you how the smell is. My wife has a very keen nose!
