Spent the day today rebuilding a slightly used leaning metal tree stand with new wooden seat. The original expanded metal seat is only 9 inches wide and 40 inches long. Nine inches wide is INSUFFICIENT for my aged butt. So I sandwich the expanded metal between an 18 inch by 40 inch by 3/4 inch plywood sheet and three pieces of 2 x 4 underneath, all screwed together. The foot rest is the same. Now I can take a NAP if the spirit moves me without concern of falling out of the stand. Tied in of course...

My hunting buddy is welding a drape, back rest, and shooting rail to another leaning metal stand. It too will get new 3/4 inch plywood seats.

Tomorrow I will paint the new wood and the metal.

Friday I will erect the like-new leaning metal stands in their old locations and apply new drapes to the sides and shooting rails. Certainly check on germination. Hope to see progress.

Saturday, I hunt from a stand, hunt from the ground, or maybe leave the place alone for another week (which will lead me to antlerless deer weekend).
