I like what you did there. You are missing the bottle opener. Easy enough to add later I guess.
Duh!! Stpupid me.

I thought he was showing off the dust pan. And it looks like it's a nice one!

I didn't make it, but I had a heavy hand in finding the seat and designing it.

Simple but boring to machine on a manual mill. Front engine guard.

With only 4 coasters you wouldn't want to be harnessed in when it falls over.

You will notice over the years office chairs have moved up from 3-4-5 or 6 wheels/legs so that you cannot lean between two and tip over.

Hey, I got one of them.. Finished it a couple weeks ago.

Found a fancy Herman Miller Aeron chair at the dump... Couldn't pass it up, but it had a broken base. So I made a new one. Heck my desk is in the garage anyway.

I didn't think about doubling the bottom cross bars.

Whenever I get around to building my own I'll do that.

I'm thinking that I'll either get a captains chair out of a van or maybe the deep crushed velvet seat out of an early 80s Lincoln that I saw.
