    Cool Gentleman...Feast upon my magnificence!

    I have a very long Journey coming up and since the Colt armrest is about as comfortable as leaning on a midget with nails for hair, I decided to go ahead and "IMPROVE" it.

    Im not very good with building things therefore this makes me all the more proud. Yes Yes its not perfect, but in the words of the great Immanuel Kant:
    "Out of the crooked timber of humanity, no straight thing was ever made.".

    I have been called a chop for doing this so any positive praise is more than welcome.

    Below are a few pictures.

    Speaking of Immanuel this even looks like it was made by a Kant, are you distantly related?

    OK, let me be honest - it is not an oilpainting or something you can plan on making a living from - BUT it looks stunningly and effectively practical !!!

    ah, Emmanuel Kant. makes me think of Monty Python...

    Emmanuel Kant was a real pissant who was very rarely stable,
    Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar who could think you under the table,
    David Hume could out-consume Schopenhauer and Hegel,
    And Wittgenstein was a beery swine who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.
    There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach ya 'bout the turning of the wrist,
    Socrates himself was permanently pissed...
    John Stuart Mill, of his own free will, with half a pint of shandy was
    particularly ill,
    Plato, they say, could stick it away, half a crate of whiskey every day,
    Aristotle, Aristotle was a beggar for the bottle,
    Hobbes was fond of his dram,
    And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart, "I drink therefore I am."
    Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed;
    A lovely little thinker but a bugger when he's pissed.

    the important thing is that you made something. I approve.

    next time it will be better, I am sure.


    edit - because you'd have to be truly gifted to do worse...

    Thats an excellent idea but it will be used for things such as chocolate, little things and my forever trusted H&K P30

    I was offering to help you perfect your armrest, but you're too far away.

    Paint the inside out with a good paint so that you can wipe the muck out without it sticking/absorbing in to the wood.Add a smooth water proof carpet inside to finish off or get fancy. Well done.
