   Nice chairs, worth the wait. Think I'll have to make one myself.

Glad to see the pics! The natives were getting mighty impatient!

They look so tipy.


They actually are pretty stable. I can lean them all the way back and flop back into them and they will not even try to tip. They are 15" rims. I don't know know the base of a office chair is but I would venture to say their about the same at the base. I'm thinking about trying to find a few old dollies and welding them to the dollies where the seats don't have to picked up to be moved.

Very neat. Glad to see you found a repupose for old stuff.

As for moving them, put an axel on the "back" of the bottom rim so the tires just dont quite touch the ground. Then grab the back of the seat and pull towards you. Tires touch, roll it wherever. Old push mower wheels would probably work even.

Making them mobile is a great idea.  Let us know how it turns out.

Hi Steve and everyone, I dig the recliners! Nothing better than using what you have to build something useful. Here is the computer chair I built for my shop computers. Years ago a friend gave me 3 captains chairs out of a wrecked motor home. I used one on this but still have not used the other two yet, so you have inspired me to try to make taller bar stool type ones! The base on the computer chair is from a broken office chair that was in the dumpster at work. I keep a milk crate nearby for a footstool when it is time for a nap which I probably do too often---LOL!

Later---DAC
