hmm, been a while longer, but brent's record is still standing! got the last of the three other chairs assembled, and now all that is left, is to secure the cushion braces to the sides, and redo the seat cushions.
getting back into this again. nipped the corners off of the bases for the drop in seat cushions, and drilled a vent hole. now all that is left is to take the seat covers off of the old bases, and staple them in place. then, the supports go in place, and the cushions get dropped in.
