Could a glue on the inside work to stick it to the hoops?

I think that's possible with my model glue. I will try a corner.

This was a free gift ("I can't find the keys so can't get into it, would you like it?") when we picked up a chest of drawers. Got us a walnut cocktail cabinet!

I was very confused and trying to work out why your cocktail cabinet had a rest for sheet music

I'm going to make the bottles I put in it empty. Beyond that, as is. Might rewire the light because it terrifies me, and I would rather die by own shoddy work than someone else's.

Why are you going to put empty bottles in it? There are some nice little automatic lights you can buy that are battery powered or rechargeable, that come on when they sense movement, so you could have them auto-on when it opens.

Did you sort this already? A long channel for each pole is likely the most best solutiong if those hoops aren’t welded on at the bottom. Glue will likely fail at some point and attaching it with loops will create stress points where the loops/toes are when it’s hit by wind.

I'll put full bottles in, then drink them.

I'll look at the lights, ta.

They’re a great chair. It’s my birdwatching chair. I bought it just so I could sit and watch the birds. I bet it’s make an excellent reading chair, too. I like the top wings to catch your head in case you nod off for a bit.

Is that the chair from IKEA? Jem always says she wants one of those whenever we go.

Relatedly, but not an armchair or indeed from IKEA, we've just bought a(nother) new sofa. Got fed up of the cat and dog hair collecting on the fabric sofa we have so we've gone for a full-leather jobber that should be easy to wipe the hair off and clean.

Yes, a Strandmon. I got the matching footstool too.

I'd like to say I'm breaking it in properly by drinking port and puffing a pipe but I'm fresh out of the former and don't smoke anyway.

Enjoy your new sofa! Looks super.

I hope you’ve got a burgundy smoking jacket, Kern. I think you’d carry one off very well. Also, you need a pet jackdaw.

Buy Jem the armchair as a surprise. Like Kern says, they are super comfy.

As there are so few of us on the Tuesday night quiz these days, perhaps Kern could do a Jackanory and tell us a story from his new chair instead.
