Credit to Tim Celeski for the design. Cherry with walnut plugs that were soaked in dark walnut stain.

Stools are 27” tall. Although the pics make the legs look like they go inward they splay out at 3 degrees. The footrest slopes down at 10 degrees. Instead of pillowing (rounding over) the plugs that are traditionally done I sloped the top of the plugs at 10 degrees to meet at a crown. This way there is a flat surface for the light to reflect off of. When you walk by it you get kind of a sparkle effect as the light bounces from plug to plug. The top has a slight concave to it. My photography is really bad.

Those are great looking bar stools! I love G&G, and your stools would look right at home in the Gamble house!

The attention to details makes all the difference, a ice looking project indeed.
