I thought I would enter this into the summer challenge. As many of you have seen before, it is the stools that I made earlier in the year. The frames is held together with finger joints and there are 2 rails that are mortised and tenoned into the top for the seat to sit on. The seat is laminated into that shape with a piece of saddle leather glued to the top. A very simple looking design, but a bit of a challenge to make.
The second and third picture is of a different set that I made for a show, they are thinner and have a taper on the top and bottom pieces. I hope you enjoy…
P.S. I just realized that the summer challenge rules state that no glue can be used in the pieces made. I must not have read the rules very well, and would like to thank Don for letting me know. I am going to email Martin and ask that it be removed, seeing how the only way for the finger joints to work is to have a fair amount of glue in them. Thanks all.
