A little bit of normality

You made a nice job of the chair Bryan. Funny, I was only trying to remember the last time I had fish and chips at the weekend. I think it was at the end of the first lock down.

That look's an excellent chair Bryan. I've been thinking about making one myself but not actually doing anything about it for ages, hopefully seeing yours will spur me on.

Nice one. I made the S@N one and it did make observing easier. One problem I had was that it would spread until it would collapse. I solved it by fitting a strap.

Here is the Mk.2 version of the chair.  The hockey stick seat brackets are much more stable, helped by the full width dowels, so they take my 100+ Kgs easily.  The spreader bar not only stops the legs widening at high seat positions, but prevents them contracting at very low seat positions.  It doesn't seem to rock side to side much so I won't fit stabilising feet, but may have to do something to prevent the legs sinking into soft ground.large.s_Mk2.JPG.978898d1addfa60d1718b84f1cad3314.JPG
