I took these the other day when a friend asked to see the saddle I bought. Since the photo was taken, I have rounded off the right had side of the slats (still have to do the left hand side). I bought a couple of stove bolts so I can make this an adjustable height stand. WIll route two groves in the front and back sides so I can fit the bolts in and then tighten them at the right height (whatever size fits the person).
I was thinking of a nice gunstock finish for the stain.
