    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?

    It's an all new and improved chair.............what you see on the other is as far as I got on it..............the new owner is finishing it.........this go-round I want it as screen accurate as possible. :love

    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
