My girlfriend’s brother was looking to buy some counter-height stools. He asked her if I would be interested in building them instead of getting store bought. It took a lot of arm twisting to get me to agree!
They are made from red oak and have a coat of red oak stain with two coats of espresso on top. The finish is 3 coats of semi-gloss wipe-on poly and 3 coats of satin over the top of it.
Had some surface checking (thank you for identifying the problem, jinkyjock) but that was really the only issue I ran across. They were really a joy to make!
Mortise and tenon joinery with 1” dowels attaching the seat.
