Carrier landings

Kubota appears to be exploring a career as a Navy A-V-A-tor. 

He has been practicing "carrier landings" on the livingroom sofa.  Kubota is somewhere north of 250 pounds.  It is what landlubbers would call a controlled crash landing.

The sofa lacks the appropriate arresting cables and has been taking a beating.

Today's chore was to replace the legs.  I cut some lengths of 2-by-4 and attached them to the frame with a generous number of deck screws.

Kubota has the eyesight and reflexes to be a Navy A-V-A-tor but I don't think he is bowlegged enough.
