Yesterday I was cleaning up my shop when I ran across this old tractor seat. I had picked it up at a estate auction for free. I had a can of John Deere green which I think looks pretty good. On the other side of my shop was this maple stump my brother in law had left me. Well my wife wanted another seat for the sun room so I went to work. I built a jig to cut a slot with my router for the pieces of angle I used. I needed the slot to be level with the floor since the log was cut uneven. I wanted to to keep the natural look of the stump. The only thing I did was sand the cut marks with my angle grinder/sanding disk. I also cleaned up the sides then applied a spar varnish all over. The only down side to this chair is you have to move it with a two wheel dolly.
