View Full Version : New Ppruning chair

23rd Apr 2009, 22:46
I am pleased to say that I now have a newly renovated chair at my desk.

While my Aunt Marys (excuse me - cough cough) show that I am a mere casual interloper compared with some of the ppruning legends here, what ppruning I do will be done in conditions of extreme comfort, even magnificence.

The chair is a large beech one, with carved arms, slats at the back and a new woven rattan seat. It used to belong to my grandfather, who I imagine spent many hours asleep at his desk in it, such is the ergonomic design of the thing, truly a throne fit for the most extended session of ppruning.

I will send a picture in due course.

Got a drink holder installed?

You'll need one

Sounds like you'll need some form of commode conversion as well.

An excellent idea.

Occasionally there is some clear desk space, so I use that, but why not have an attachment on the chair? I've got a nice bit of wood, too...

(edit for clarification: 'clear desk space' refers to the previous post but one, not to the post about commodes. However, a drink holder would be good for better ppruning and to keep the claret rings off letters to clients; the commode conversion would be a bit more complex. But I'm thinking...why not a shower as well, and a bit of a modesty curtain - I may be able to dispense with the rest of the house!)

How sad...Says he sitting in a recliner, laptop within easy reach, TV within view, beer on my side table, must get out more. :)

So presumably his aunt Mary (oops) was quite meagre too?

I'm sat up in bed with a laptop - then if I fall asleep I can just remain where I am . . .

Pprone ppruning...and I spent all that time polishing up a chair!!

My grandfather scored elsewhere than in that chair, by all accounts...

This is my new chair. A retired internet forum moderator was having a garage sale.

You certainly look chuffed, Capt Stable, and no wonder, with a spare and all! And that would be your Ppruning tie, no doubt?

btw, the ghosts in the machine have changed the term 'p o s t c o u n t' in the posts above to 'Aunt Marys' for some bizzarre reason! Extraordinary. :8

Not mine, RJM - it took four years of hard persuasion before her indoors would agree to one of these:-

and she gets one of those "indulgent" looks on her face when I buy any new "toys".

Now that's Ppruning!

Tailor made chair

Capt.KAOS I am given to believe that that is designed specifically for kilt wearers. Beware splinters.

I shudder to think about the guy who hand carved this chair to fit as he sat in it.

This be my type computer chair:


Very soft and comfy, one you can sit on it or in it ;-)

I'm still after a pick-n-glider for guitar practice. Mind you, Vonbag's suggestion has merit . . . :E

And then there are other days when "Old Smokey" has your name on it.
