    Thanks Pips! This makes perfect sense!

    I have a hydraulic chair and always set it at the highest level because I'm tall. Then hunch over to get back down to the machine. Ouch!

    I wish I could spread projects out that long, but as my wife would agree, once I start something, I am obsessed until it is finished

    Looks great. I think we appreciate things more when done ourselves.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Got it all finished up. Total length ended up 73x48. I have a drawcord bottom and snaps for the foot box. Has about 2.5 - 3" of loft. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I do have a question. I can see where all my down is since the gray is so light and it looks like there are some thinner spots and thicker. Should I be worried about that? Here's the pics

    Looks great... Only time will tell about the thinner and thicker looking spots...

    Beautiful work!

    That looks fantastic! Well done. I don't think the thin/thick spots should be much of a concern unless there are large gaps with no down at all.

    Put it in the dryer, with NO HEAT, along with a few clean tennis balls. That should even out the down and fluff it up.
