AwesomeBob, with Rudy helps
Bob,Thanks, the chair is back on the bench with two coats of milk paint on and several more coming. After much butt scratching and discussing with MsBubba ("If you paint it that way it goes in your office") I decided to use a black undercoat with a "Barn Red" Old Fashion Milk Paint finish coat. ken and a woff from the critters. I guess they think it is treat time.
Papa bear, baby bear, where's mama bear?
Andy,Funny you ask. MsBubba who is altitude challenged asked if I could make one a couple of inches lower so her feet would touch the ground. I pointed out that if I did her chin would rest on the table. Whatever the correct answer is always "Yes dear". I expect you will see one soon.ken
Ha Ha Yes Dear! I would had said the same :-)Here`s how to find her proper height for a chair.- Assemble seat and back, DO NOT put legs in yet.- Cut leg longer than maximum expected- Attach complete seat and back to a Piano stool screw mechanism base- Rotate Mrs Bubba up and down, until she find her perfect height.- Then it`s just a matter of measuring the distance (in inches for better accuracy :-) from seat and floor, cut and install legsTADA done and perfect height assuredBob, full of bright ideas this morning, with Rudy helps
Hummm, where did I place my Piano stool. I know it has to be around here someplace.Rudy needs a treat for that one :-).
BTW, the photo makes the chairs look cattywampus. They aren't. I should replace the photo but expect I will not at least not before the new chair is finished.ken
