Pride Lift Chair: Fuzzy Felt Feet

By the Universal Principle of the Conservation of Perversity, the base of the floor lamp just barely doesn’t fit under the edge of the Comfy Chair:

The feet descend from the fuzzy felt feet on the plant shelves, with the hex head socket transmogrified into a circle to match the chair feet. The support structure grew a flat plate to ensure it doesn’t pull loose from the platform:

Lift the chair (maybe with a small prybar atop some plywood to protect the floor), position the feet, lower gently: done!

While the M2 was warm, I ran off another set for the other Comfy Chair, just for symmetry.
