our combine has a nice spacious cabin but only one seat, my dad would like to have his grandchildren next to him while harvesting, and i my girlfriend. so i made a seat from oak.
it had to be fold-able because you need to access the levers below, witch also meant that it could not be supported from below.
i reinforced the design as much as i could, and so far it can take my weight without making any scary sounds. fasteing it to the wall was not as easy as i thought as the back wall is only reinforced by 1 horizontal beam, so i had to make some adaptations.
i also used the opportunity to test this french oak i bought, and i am really happy with the quality. made with no plans in one afternoon assembled with domino’s fast and strong!
