This was a project commissioned by my wife. I enjoy getting this type of project as it allows me time to design and get in the shop. The initial prototype was made of cardboard. Once the design and overall dimensions were given the OK, I batched out both stools together. The second one was completed approx 6 months after the first, mainly because of a lack of time in the shop. I recently completed the second one. The seat is scooped using a 4.5inch grinder and a sanding flapping disk, handheld with a book matched walnut slab. There is some inconsistency between both but nothing to noticeable, it gives the hand shaped feel. The legs are made from solid 8/4 stock with an attention to grain pattern. I feel like the design is a blend of the geometric legs and the organic seat. The grain was filled using timber mate wood filler. The finish is a rubbed out poly.
