Looks pretty cool just not sure using pocket screws for the foot rests will hold up over time. Many times I actually push my weight up to repossition my ass. Looks nice though.

Thanks.. I did use glue along with the pocket holes but I feel the same way that over time will not hold up.. I’ll experiment with mortises and tenons on the next one and will see how it comes out..

Very nice , always had a warm place in my heart for Barstools . Here is a pic of an outgoing tide, without the Seat cushions . Had one customer that had a Quick Draw Gun School that did some up with thick cowhide leather , priceless .

I really like this stool. I have always had an interest in bar stool, but still have not made one. Great looking build and welcome aboard.

I really like the rectangular seat. More than a round one. Was hoping to try one of these one day. Maybe you inspired me !
