This is a Hoosier style kitchen stool, modified from plans that I found in a book. I think it was “furniture around the house” but I’m not exactly sure at the moment.
The original was 23” tall. Per the customers request I stretched it to 30” tall so it could be used to sit at a high counter. In the second picture, it is turned upside down, and can be used as a stool to reach that top shelf.
Made of Red Oak, (per customer request) and finished with a double stain of Red Mahogany under Ebony customer wanted dark…. but “interesting”) , and final coats of Deft’s Satin brushing lacquer. The double stain gives it some very cool depth, and makes you look twice at the color.
overall I’m pretty pleased with it.
