My New Office Chair

As the Christmas break draws to an end for once I am in the unusual position of looking forward to going back to the office. Now as a rule I do have to admit I enjoy my job, lots of different projects to get my teeth in too, and the time off over Christmas has given plenty of time to research what I need for this years projects. However this year I return with renewed purpose keen to try out my new office chair.

Big deal I head you cry the mans got a new chair. In reality I don’t think I have ever had a new chair, the last one was a hand me down 10 years ago, and finally the back fell off a couple of months ago, however all the mechanism and adjustment’s worked, its just the structure that went, but I couldn’t bring myself to throw it away., so I have saved it for when I have some time. The Christmas break.

The challenge was to do this without spending money, making use of offcuts and bits and pieces laying around the workshop, so it helps if you have a workshop like mine with lots of different materials, wood, steel, Upholstery fabrics and horse hair.

So now I have a refurbished chair, good I hope for another 10 years.

Happy New Year
