Breakfast bar is unusually high (43”). Bar stools with a seat height of 32” were expensive so my wife asked if I could build something. Ha – then the ideas started to flow. This was my first attempt at any type of chair / stool. Always heard it was the most difficult piece of furniture to build and now I understand why.
Made from cherry, this was a complicated build due to the multiple types of joints (mortise and tenon, wedge tenons, dowel, angled tenons) and the carved seats. To carve the seat I used a Kutzall wheel on my angle grinder, then metal card scrapers and finally sandpaper. The finish is tung oil, semi-gloss poly, and paste wax.
