I just finished a series of posts on the Craftsy woodworking blog about building a Tage Frid inspired three-legged stool. It was a challenging build from start to finish. These posts detail the whole process. My version is made of Ambrosia maple.

Wow- that looks great! Favorited.
Like the detail on the back rest. Im not a fan of live edges but this solution put the bark in the center and have crisp lines on the outside. Fine solution.
Also enjoyed the blog series. Anjoyed reading.

Thanks for sharing!
