Made from 4 18” long Douglas Fir 6×6’s glued together.
Tapers were cut with a bandsaw and glued together, the grooves were cut afterward on a tablesaw.
Finished with oil.
Inspired by this. http://www.e15.com/en/backenzahn-tm-stool.html

Very Nice!

The stool will benefit greatly with studio lighting. A companion table, upside down with square or round glass, would also tell an interesting and amusing story.

Really nice looking stool!

The doug fir you used doesn’t seem like it came from any big box store or did it?
