Basic Upholstery Tools–For Stapling

Upholstery fabric is frequently attached with staples. A heavy duty hand operated stapler from the local hardware or home improvement store is great if you will not be doing several pieces.

If you plan to upholster many pieces or large pieces which need staples you may want an air stapler and compressor, but most do-it-yourself upholsters find that the less expensive handheld stapler is effective.
