For those of you who can't mentally assemble the base from the pieces strewn across the table, flip the shell over, and imagine the whole thing assembled: the chair on the right, will look alot like the finished product once I get some misc. hardware. But I am very excited to get it assembled and take the chair for its first test "drive".
Thank you, Heather, it was a fantastic present and I had a great father's day!
