    Automatic rising deck chair - GIF

    Probably not the single most comfortable chair in all of chair history, but still nice. I like how it plays on the similarity between Adirondack chairs and decking boards, while also highlighting the fact that deck real estate is often too limited.

    Yep if a couple of the neighbor's kids ever come up missing they will probably be found under the table

    Anyone seen the cat?

    I like this style of deck furniture, but I would need some sort of anti-crushing feature.

    Looks like we have a rising theme here, folks. I might omit the colored lighting on this one, but hey, not bad.

    Bonus points: build this with a decommissioned artillery or missile shell.

    Manual version, but much more stealthy.

    Not sure if this concept can be made reasonable, or at least non-pinchy. Manual does seem a better choice than something powered.

    I prefer my Bombay chilled and beers cold but quite the party deck. How many points?
    Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
