I’m changing out a water pump and a set of spark plugs. As soon as I am done I’ll be over to check out that chair. lol
Then you can have a black and blue chair. lol

Nice job. Did you do a blog on the build? That should make momma very happy.

LilRed -

Don’t get me started on trying to keep that suede clean…I actually did the finally assembly inside my living room, as I needed to slice up some oak trim to clean the bottoms up and didn’t want anything to go wrong.

As for a blog post, I took pics throughout, though not as many as I should. The cushion part is salvaged from an old office chair. I built the base & the suede re-fit. The legs are from Lowe’s.

I will have a blog post which will be an in-progress as well as a project page. I’m just too excited having the thing actually looking like it did in my head. Had to share.

I’d pick you up for the visit, but CA is a little far for a TX boy. I’ve been listening to Jerry Jeff Walker’s “LA Freeway” all day, so I’ll leave you with the two best lines:

If I can just get off of this LA freeway without getting killed or caught….

love’s a gift that’s truly handmade, we’ve got something to believe in

Hey, if an Arky right out of the Ozarks can find his way here, surely a Texan form Baja Arkansaw can. lol

My wife likes the Blue. Now she wants that color for the interior of her car. You Texans are always causing trouble for us Arkies. lol
