A hanging leather seat enables swinging while the blades on the side of the frame ensure gentle rocking. The orange coloured ropes knotted on top hold the seat steady. No use of screws or external tools at all.

 We take ourselves too seriously. We try to be the best at what we do. We usually accomplish more than others. I accomplished more drinking than Barry and John. Barry was an only child; John had an older sister – scant competition for a second son. My father drank too. For as far back as I could recall, I always remembered my father drinking. I don’t mean he was staggering around the place drunk, I mean he was a drinking person. He loved pubs, he loved the officers’ mess, he loved bars of any kind, he loved the company of men drinking together, standing by the bar drinking and smoking and talking man-talk: loud talk, blasts of raucous laughing, the telling of tales, the telling of stories from years back about the things they and their friends had done. Most of the stories involved drink, involved being in bars, about being under the influence of drink or in search of drink, of groups of men who drunk together.
