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.
