I’m a sportswriter and a few years ago, I was able to get my hands on a pair of original, 1953-install chairs from the old Milwaukee County Stadium. They sat out on my deck and in my storage unit for the last two years but armed with a new miter saw, sander and some other gadgets – plus, having grabbed a pile of leftover studs from a construction project in my neighborhood (not stolen; they were left for the trash) – I figured I’d try and throw something together.
Again, I’m still getting the hang of precise measurements – especially miter angles – and it may be a little overkill, but for all intents and purposes, it does the job and I can now sit in the same splinter-inducing discomfort I remember from my childhood.
-- May the good Lord help me if I ever actually have a shop, garage or basement.
