That is really nice looking Doug! Going to put a cushion on it for a little bit of added comfort?

I have read that some materials work better for the seat than others, getting one that isn't a dew magnet being a good decision.

That looks fantastic Doug!

you could / should market these.

I have heard lots of complaints that the old Bintel adjustable height observing chair is no longer readily available.
and that there is little in the way of alternatives.
