Last fall my neighbor and I were outside drinking too many barley-pops, I needed somewhere to sit and for the next two hours I built this. It actually got tighter over the winter. It reminds me of the stick signs in the movie “The Blair Witch Project”. It is mostly made from the trimmings off of a large lilac that lives in our backyard.

Can you sit in that thing?! It’s like I always say…people and alcohol just don’t mix!! But what a blast and some good memories to boot.

That’s great. I bet you thought it was the most awesome chair ever until you saw it the next day when you were sober. Although I’ve never done actually done this (yet), I could see this looking like a really good idea at the time when you were drinking.

I thought I was a friggen genius when I built it. I can sit in it, but only gently. I wouldn’t bother with the movie.

That’s quite a conversation piece.

I’ll bet it would slow down traffic it if it were exposed in public.

I think I would need a few beers to be convinced to sit in that contraption! Thanks for sharing.

Pretty fun! Just don’t light a match under it while sitting! I think it needs some arms (to hold you tight my dear!). Great prop for a scary movie.

I love this chair! If it were mine I would put it in my garden and allow the sweet peas to ramble through it.
You are an artiste!

that is a bad ass chair, even if it looks a bit scratchy…glad to see you had the sense to stay off the tools for this project.

Have your say...
