up a chair and watching the game has taken on a whole new meaning
thanks to my friends Timothy Hill and Fina MacDonell, whose Sports
Chair creationis one of the most imaginative things we've come
across in a long time. Using old sports equipment and a discarded
chair, here is their masterful method of assembly:
old tennis racket to the back of the chair by whittling the end
down and screwing it into a hole in the seat of the chair. (*Keep
in mind that if the holes aren't already in the chair, you will
have to drill them yourself). Cut old pool cues in half and whittle
the bottom ends down so they fit into holes on either side of
the racket. Keep carpenter's glue handy, and reinforce each item
in the hole with it.
holes in the bottom of a couple of baseballs and then cap the
tops of the cues with them. Lacrosse sticks can also be cut down
and screwed into the chair beside the pool cues.
For the arms
of the chair, whittle down the top ends of the pool cues so that
they fit into pieces of wood for the armrests. Lash some leather
lacing around the arms and back to hold it steady.
the look, attach foam rubber and a piece of plywood together,
cover with ribbon and attach to a racket press. Then, slide it
on top of the racket, so that it works as a pillow.
Can you believe
that from all the castaway stuff, they came up with this perfect
sports chair? Well, now the idea is yours for the making. Are
you up to the challenge?
