Putting together furniture with my father is more than an adventure, it’s an odyssey.  There are triumphs, failures, near murders and spanish mysteries in the instructions.  This piece was for my office in which it actually required us to use metal bending on the bottom of the chair.  Why the piece didn’t already come bent from the factory, where they have those big fancy machines instead of fragile human hands for bending metal, I’ll never know.

But it got bent.
