"Hames" Rocking Chair
I used old horse hames to make this unique rocking chair. It might make the perfect gift for your dad, grandpa or great grandpa, especially if they still have some hames from their farming days to use in making the chair.
  The rocker is made from oak and has a leather back. It takes 8 hames to make the chair and two pairs to make the legs. The arms can display brass knobs if you happen to have hames with them. At the top of the chairís back thereís a steel cutout of a horse pulling a buggy with a man sitting in it. The cutout is made from 1/8-in. thick steel cut on a CNC laser machine.
  I use a total of eight horseshoes on the chair. Itís built sturdy and has been tested by some 250-lb. friends. (Larry J. Thompson, 2113 E. 13th St., The Dalles, Ore. 97058 ph 573 543-2500; lmtom32@yahoo.com)
