LOL...yea but do you really want a photo of my left ass cheek?

I like the idea of turning the seat but I already commited to the bench that I built & don't have the space to turn it.

This was built from some nice heavy duty retail shelf supports we got in an auction we won a while back. The shelves are 1" thick pine that we are going to use for flooring for our cabin & if there isn't enough pine to do a room the wood will be used for the floor in the bus!
This bench is for my computer, the shipping table & also to photograph auction items on. The shelf below is for my battery bank, inverter & charge controller. I am polyurethaning the wood surfaces tonight. I also decided to build a dash shelf for my high tech Sony stereo which will do fine for now... I need to find out if there is a 12V adapter I can use for this radio, it doesn't have a 1/8" adapter plug, just the standard 2 prong radio plug or I can use D cell batteries. Anyway, this shelf will be suspended on stainless risers if I can figure out how to attach them without too much hassle.

I got to use my router for the first time which was a treat as I had never used one before!

Maybe combine the two so that when the step cover is down, the seat is down, and when you lift one the other automatically goes up. I'm sure there's a way to make that happen safely.

Sorry to hear about the injuries. I like how you got that mounted. I hope I can do a similar install when I get a round tuit.

Howdy Jim! I like the idea of the floor drop & seat combo... I might consider fabricating something, thanks! I am fortunate to be tall & when I sit in the seat I have no problem resting my feet across the stairs but my wife needs something else for her to be comfy since she can't reach...

Hmmm...Tim? Who is Tim? I think I need to see "the finger"!
My injuries are nothing gore related but many bruises that just slow me down to a crawl which is agrevating... but I am feeling better these days.
