I apologize if I offended any or all LJs in the past present or future. I posted a build off question that not one person responded to or even read it, so I removed it. The original post was to challenge a “Stool build off/show us your shop chair/seat/perch/dorsal recumbent apparatus.” Kind of a “if you built it, show it off/or build one then show it off.” I saw JCsterling’s shop chair and that started my thoughts toward the idea. (probably done before).

OOPS! Sorry again.

Sorry Bradford. What’s a build off question?

I’m not sure, I don’t read every thread so sometimes I miss things. But I would be surprised if anything got intentionally ignored by everyone else on the forum.

I have no idea what the question was so I can’t guess on whether it lacked responses because nobody had any answers, or the topic just got buried or who knows what. The beauty of LJ is that it generates a lot of content continuously… the drawback is that it generates a lot of content continuously. It only takes a hour or two for something to get pushed several pages deep on the “pulse. “

You’ve never offended me Bradford. I’ve noticed some things just get posted at the wrong time and then get buried rather quickly so no one sees them. Maybe that’s what happened. Why don’t you just repost it and see what happens.

Hey, I like looking through the unanswered posts and try to respond to them if I can add something, I guess I just missed this one…its been crazy busy here so I’ve not had decent LJs fix for about two weeks now. I’m with Chip, repost it and see what happens.

Hi all, I too would like to say “sorry” for all the things I’ve said and done in the past, and for all the things I might do and say in the future. You just never know sometimes what might pop out of your mouth instantly, and hurt someones feelings, or get some people mad and upset with you, especially if you deserve it, and I guess they have a right to be mad and upset….Sometimes we people get what we deserve one way or another….
Sorry, Bradford, I didn’t mean to rip off your thread….I just felt this was a good time to say it since we were sending out apologies…....

Not to worry, Bradford, I’ve seen things (and posted a couple) that just disappeared into the dim and misty past. Some days I come and look, and it takes a pile of searching for something I posted (I don’t want a watch list) on a project, and I find it buried back 4 or 5 pages. A lot happens here. Plus, the random refresh (for lack of a better name) pulls up stuff that is many years old. I’ll jump on it to see what is going on, only to find it’s a couple of years old with no comments newer than 2 years old! I’m not complaining, I’ve seen some cool old projects.

I just replied to a post that started 586 days ago using search but it had info that I was looking for. Like Chip posted it may have just been bad timing. Vacation season or whatever things pick up here fall through spring when a lot of the bloggers get a break from lawn work and are confined indoors due to cooler temps.

OK, I’ll try this again… after looking at JCSterling’s shop chair that was posted here: , I thought it would be nice to invite everyone
to “Show us your shop stool/chair/perch/dorsal recumbent mechanism/seat/or build off”.
Most of our builds are for inside or outside, but I haven’t seen many that were just for the woodshop.
I say, show us the ugliest, oldest, most comfortable chair that you use in the shop. Or show us
your best work in building a new shop stool/chair/etc.
and post 1 picture/link, here in this thread.
I guess my build off question was stuck in cyberspace. Again I apologize for my lost apology about my lost question. :)

I don’t usually sit in the shop, but I have an old drafting chair gathering dust! I have plans for a cool 3-legged stool that I want to build one day. Maybe I’ll have to build it really quick and post it!

Bradford sorry I don’t have a chair in my shop it is to small to have a chair in it that is why I do most of my work outside.
If I need a break I walk to the patio and sit for a while.

No need to worry about it lots of LJ members don’t get respond from their post.
Sometime we don’t have the answer.

I have an old (60’s vintage I would guess) kitchen chair. Metal legs, vinyl padded seat and back. Plastic foot missing off one leg. Last part of a table and 4 chairs that I bought $50 in 1982.

I have one of those metal fold out bridge table chairs. The reason that I have a chair is not to work in it but to sit in it. Most of the time that I’m in my shop is to work, however, I also take breaks. When I’m not working one of the places that I like to sit is in my shop and to think about my shop, the tools, and what all I’m going to do with them.

As far as the other things go – we all make mistakes every now and then because we are all human.

I have an old bar stool I picked up along the side of the road several years ago tucked under my workbench. It rarely gets used…except maybe when doing some electrical work on the bench. I also have a director’s chair that gets used more often for taking a break.

Good morning Bradford, no problems here :)

I hadn’t noticed the original post… Sorry…

I have 2 shop stools, not worthy of being posted. They are simply the chromed steel padded seat models that Woodcraft was clearing out about a year ago. one of them has already suffered from a teething puppy attack and needs to get recovered…
