This is my first project listing on LumberJocks. I started this stool in a class at MASW and finished it at home. It was my first attempt at carving so it gave me an excuse to buy more tools.

Very nice job, what type of wood did you use? It looks like walnut,,,but it’s hard to tell.
Great job on the ball and claw.

WOW, beautiful, the curve in the legs are fabulous. The design and detail on the feet are perfect. Great finish, great project! An heirloom for sure.
