Many of you are probably getting tired of me by now. But I am running out of things to post.

Finishing a set of stools. The request was with no backs. They are 30” tall. The seat is 16”x16”. I used a 9 degree angle on all of the cuts. Obviously it’s Beetle Kill Pine. Finished with oil based poly. This is probably not my final design for stools, but the customer liked it.

thanks for reading and all comments are welcome

You keep posting. I’ll keep looking. I need to build some stools. How do you shape the seat?

Not tired… amused… Hmmm, stool sample… where my thoughts go and the things I could say. A trip to the drug store for some “stool softener” perhaps? Great looking project as always Monte.

I like it!

I would like it more with some back support but the customer is always right!

The 9 degree splay looks just right. Adding this to favorites so I don’t lose it. I think you could put a back and rockers and have a nice rocking chair?

I never get tired of seeing cool wood projects. Looks great. And now I have a better idea on how Sherry and I should finish our kitchen bar stools.

You obviously would never use one of these….
But is it comfortable???

Great job.

I use a Kutzall carving head on a right angle grinder. Then lots of sanding. Then of course you sit on it to see if it’s comfortable.

Ok, thanks Monte. Maybe I’ll just use a chainsaw….and lots of sanding.

Not tired of you Monte. Great looking stool. Your stash of that beetle kill pine must almost endless, but it makes every piece so much more than just the construction.

Nice job on these. They look comfortable and something you would just gravitate towards to “try it out.”
