This was an old car seat I had in my shed.
I was going to build a PC based racing frame, it would have been on springs with a
force feedback steering wheel attached to the frame to give
race vibration.
Unfortunately I never got hold of an Arc welder to make the frame:-(
Anyway here's what I made, and will now use on a regular basis.

Step 1: The Materials

Picture of The Materials
Car seat, 4 x panels, 4 x 2" x 4" wood blocks, 28 wood screws, 4 x castor's,

Step 2: The Base

Picture of The Base
The base has to be strong, and well constructed to hold the car seat.

Step 3: The Build

Picture of The Build
Make sure you have enough clearance for the seat to slide back and forth on it's runners.
You must slide the seat forward when you recline the back.
Otherwise you could tip over.

Step 4: The Style

You can make the support frame higher or lower, it's up to you.
It can be used as an office chair, you can add arms, if you like.

Step 5: Whats Next

Picture of Whats Next
I will have to look for an electric seat from a BMW or Merc.
Just to see if I can automate the process.
I love this! Much better than just leaning the back of the seat up against the shed. :P

Cool idea. That would be cool for a media room.

That's pretty awesome, I been looking for a computer chair but all the good ones seems very expensive and was thinking about making something like this and now having seen 1 I will definitely be building 1 myself :)
