Well my couch was about 12 years old and very worn. Time to replace it,
Been shopping for a leather recliner for several months. Looked at several Cincinnati furniture stores and found nothing in the style I wanted nor anything I felt was a good buy for the money.
Ebay buff for years, bought and sold etc.
Found a reputable seller with good feedback and the chair style I’ve been looking for. Took the plunge and bought one.
Must say I’m very happy with my purchase. Quality is much better then I expected and the leather is
very heavy weight cow hide and consistanlty colored etc. Yes is made in China, but designed in the USA.

Brings me to the laptop table.
Been using a coffee table to support my laptop while I surfed lumberjocks etc. With the reclining feature, a coffee table is no longer a good work surface for my laptop. I had made a table for my wifes recliner and laptop a few months ago. Now I need one for my recliner. Designed this one in sketchup. Design allows the table to slide under the chair and clear the chair arm.
In my lumber collection I have large 15 inch wide plank of 4/4 mansonia and a 8/4 plank of anigre.
In just a couple hours I designed the table and dimensioned the lumber and ran it thru the drum sander.
Still need to cut the mortice and tennons and a couple dove tails. Will post photos of the finished table tomorrow night. Thought I’d post the sketchup design and offer the model to anyone that wants it if they want to make their own table. Send me an email address and I will forward it.
