I’ve been promising my friends bar stools for about two years now. I could never come up with a design I liked. Then I discovered Green and Green & the work of Darrell Peart (and others). I found inspiration and this is the design I came up with. The plan incorporates some G n G features, cloud lifts, scalloped back, ebony pillowed plugs and the leg indent (thanks very much to Darrell Peart for his insight in his book “Greene & Greene : Design Elements for the Woodshop” – A great read as well as great reference!).
So this really is a prototype. Before I batch out eight/ten of these – please give a little feedback on the design and let me know what everyone else thinks. I’ve made mistakes/changes on this one (pretty obvious when you look close) and the seat is crude & rough, but it’s my prototype and it’ll stay in the shop – pretty nice for a shop stool though! Quarter sawn White Oak body, Black Walnut seat, African Blackwood for the accents – fumed 24 hours and finished with Arm R Seal sealer & satin (still needs waxing in these pix).
Little feedback please – Thanks!
