    The best table for my shop

    I've made 2 and would like 2 more. Finding old barber shop chairs is getting harder and more costly. Raise and lower to suit working level, spin to work all sides of a piece. I want another to add a vice to instead of a table for holding legs and other items I would need to work on.

    Great idea Dave. Some one also posted about using a hospital gurney to do the same thing. I think the barber chair idea might be cheaper than trying to find a used power gurney!
    Aloha,

    I just checked here in Portland on Craig's List, there were 4 listed from $75- $999. might take a look in your area if you haven't already tried that.

    Thanks Dan I'll do that

    I also put the chair base on wheels. Makes it easy to get jobs in and out of the spray booth.
