During the booth at the fair, first priority is to pay for being there. But the actual success is measured by custom orders received in the weeks that follow. That started the next day with 3 orders for custom stools (20 stools in all). Most however wanted swivels with backs. I had never made those before, so time to learn.
The seat is 30 inches high, 17 inches wide and the back is 17 inches high. I have made 3 different bases for it. I am fairly happy with this one. The splay is 11 degrees and seems very solid. My main complaint on the seat is that the back is too straight up. Needs to lean back another 3-5 degrees.
Here are some pictures of my glue up on the seat.
Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.
