Trying different seat designs. I personally like this one a lot better. I still need more contour in the back however. Still Beetle Kill Pine. The next modification will be the bases.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

To me it looks like a secretarial office chair? I’m sure you are thinking about efficiency in production and materials involved. guess I prefer the last stool over this design.

Have you considered a three legged stool with this top?

Good to see you challenging yourself!

I like them all. After you get through with all these prototypes, you will have a NICE set of mix matched bar stools that you could sell as a set! Great work Monte.

It’s cool Monte. I want to sit on it. Thinking of chair arms, I wonder if with your previous iteration you could have the arm come out of the back and not the base. It could be a piece in the glue up.

This one has a bar stool look. I would have a drink on it. Nice work.

Monte, I like the look of the back on this one much better. The previous design looked top heavy, if that makes any sense. Of course to truly offer an opinion one would have to sit in it after a few drinks.

I really like the stool but as nice as this one is, I prefer the look of the one with the double back supports. Just looks sturdier. Love the wood. I wish I had me some of that.

Sandra, my wife has a pink hammer and hammers like lightening…..never strikes in the same spot twice. But that is not the hammer’s fault. Since I am next in line, the dented wood around a nail and the bent nail are both my fault. I don’t understand her explanation but she has convinced me I am at fault.

Monte, your work always amazes and inspires me and then I remember I don’t have a National Forest in my back yard and all the wood to chose from. I want some tracking numbers tomorrow…now I have a commissioned Cedar chest to build from todays show. BKP shell lined with Cedar, domed top and on casters.
We got a small Cedar mill about 1/2 hour away that I just discovered and next week after I get new batteries put in my pacemaker, I’ll get up there and shop.

Monte, I like the larger sections of the BKP this version allows. Other than that, I can’t decide which one I like better. Needs a sit down test, I guess! Thanks for sharing.

Yup, further testing is needed….

Monte, you did another excellent though beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, I have to agree that the first design appeals to me more but that’s just me, again out of the park on this one as well.
