First off, apologies for the poor photos. I snapped these in my finishing room and haven’t yet had a chance to take decent pics. I’ll update when possible. So here we have ten bar chairs/stools in antique hard pine. The seats and backrests are contoured to be nice and comfy, all the joints are pinned mortise and tenons, finish is clear satin poly. The footrests are also hard pine, burned with a torch to blacken them and also with a coat or three of poly. The grain and color of this wood is just beautiful. For that beauty, your tools will pay a price. I would definitely recommend hard pine for your next project if you love sharpening chisels all the time.

Good Job Mr. B…believe me, I can relate to working with old Long-Leaf Heart pine, it is tougher then nails after a century or two :) Nice barstools…I like the design and color…

Be well and God Bless..
