I have had to retire the inspirational chair… do not be concerned …it is still in the shed… just relegated to the far corner…

As you can see, it is a little worse for wear… just like I had been feeling lately…

But as you can see from the following photographs…

In Kit form..

Remove the protective bubble wrap and attach the seat to the frame using 4 bolts and the spanner and allen key supplied.

Now I will be inspired by a sleek modern chair…

Just as the last chair was mimicking the way I felt… this new chair will inspire me to build a sleek modern business..

Not that I will have much time to sit and be inspired…

Just a short note about where this wonderful chair came from… oh I know China… but it was purchased from the new local Masters Hardware [for our americal friends.. read big box store Lowes].... for a outrageous price of AU$15.00 … you heard right… and now SWMBO wants a half dozen more to keep in the garage in case we have visitors.

Once I picked up a chair like this from the street in council colection day. After working on it, it became my favorite chair…well, in the backyard. If SWAMBO allows me, I will use it indoor to watch TV.

A very stylish chair Larry. I guess we can expect a big jump in production and sales with that one!

Quick… spill some finish on it and get it embedded with sawdust! It looks like it belongs on the deck where you have tea and crumpets! You need to give it “character” or have a “character” sit in it ;-)

I think you need to make a holder for a cold one and it will be perfect.

Just like my wife. I make things out of wood and she comes home with something from a store.

Many happy brews in your new chair./
