Redneck Lawn Furniture
"The seats seemed too nice to throw away when we stopped needing to spot-spray in beans, so the concept of making yard furniture out of them came up after several beverages," laughs Hundertmark.
He welded the seats to scrap pieces of square tubing welded to a disc blade on the base and a coulter blade on top that holds a manhole cover tabletop. To add stability, Hundertmark bolted smaller square tubing with a flat steel base under each seat. He welded foot pegs from the bean bar to the center beam and attached an old umbrella from a Deere tractor for shade.
"We use it for barbecues," Hundertmark says. "When I have consignment auctions, farmers sit on the chairs and I get a lot of comments on it."
