      Good point. I hadn't thought of starting one with something that
      simple. I suppose it's because I was used to getting the lumber
      out of the rough with large industrial machines. I suppose
      the bottoms might be something a bit wider and the tops made
      from turning squares - with a back slotted in.

      I showed my wife the web-page and the improvement needed
      for most folks, particularly us older ones is back support. If
      she'd wanted one I would have bought it for her. No back? Uh-uh!

      Thanks for sending the page though Tim, I forwarded it on locally.
