Ah... the Madison. :D

That looks mighty fine, TOSPHASER.

Did you use the specs from A.S.A.P.?

Very nice work on the padding. I understand that's one of the hardest parts to get right. It looks about perfect (although there appears to be a very small indentation on the seat pad front and center, causing a minor asymmetry... maybe it's just the light).

I'm looking forward to WIP pics as you continue with the rest of the chair. Great job. :thumbsup :thumbsup :thumbsup

:lol It's hard to believe that some people may and are still sitting in those while waiting to see the old Doc.
Thanks Apollo

I would have to say that stretching the vinyl was by far the hardest part. here is a couple of pix of my first try a while back with no real specs. :lol
Note the flat bottom and flat back.

Whoa. It looks as if you're already virtually finished.

Are you just re-doing the Madison components to improve the look of your finished chair, or is this a whole new and improved Command Chair, building on what you learned on the first go round?

Cool. The other guy gets a great start on a Command Chair, and you get to hone your vision and skills without ending up with a dozen chairs piled up in the garage. :lol
