Beautiful stool, Mitch! I’ve been contemplating a 3 legged stool. Where did you get the plans? And how did you shape the seat? :-) Thanks for sharing.

Of course it’s nice . You made it! Did you use your seat to contour the seat? LOL!

That is a good looking stool. Sort of reminiscent of Wharton Esherick

beautiful stool,and a wonderful design. The seat has a real nice shape to it. However what caught my eye were the tapered hexagonal legs.That is a nice extra feature.

Thanks for the kind words. As far as shaping the seat, it is made of three pieces so I cut as much of the contour as i could on the band saw. I shaped it the rest of the way with a gouge and then sanded it with aggressive sand paper. I shaped the outside on the bandsaw with the table tilted dramatically. I liked the angled curves that gave me. As far as plans, I made it up as I went along. Actually, I had the seat because I made two when I made a much earlier three-legged stool. It sat around in my shop until I learned how to make the hexagonal legs and thought they would go together.

The seat looks like a face puckering up to kiss your ash. Hehe. Really nice build. Well done.
