I borrowed this idea from jimmyb http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96190
Just a bunch of offcuts, cedar, maple, alder, hickory and walnut.
The old seat had gone to heck, then it was “re-upholstered” with duct tape which had lasted 10 years or so, but as it deteriorated it had become very uncomfortable.
Although the seat is solid wood it is very comfortable to sit on for long periods of time.
Cut with my bandsaw and a circle cutting jig, a 1/2” round over bit was used for the edges.
Deft spray lacquer finish.
I like it so much that I am looking around for several more old stools to do this too.
