Drum throne. Fully adjustable and will actually take my weight unlike ironing chairs ;)

I stand. I'll probably get a chair at some point as it's not very good for my back, but at the moment it's fine.

I use an ironing chair - or rather two ironing chairs set at different heights - then all I need to do is swap them depending how high the eyepiece is. :)

I have had one of these for a good few years now. It saves your back no end, and I have always found it adjusted to what I wanted to look at.

I use the very same thing. I bought mine at a car boot sale for £3 :)

I found online, dimensions for something called a 'Lybar seat'. It's basically 4 pieces of wood screwed together. It gives you 3 different heights and it cost me the grand total of zero pounds as I had some spare timber. You'll find the plan for it on Google, just type in Lybar seat.

I believe LYBAR stands for lift your butt and rotate, or something along those lines. I looked at these and for the the most part, would be fine. On the ODD occasion that I may have imbibed, balance may be an issue and thought it best to have something that is a little more 'forgiving'.
