The wife requested a pair of “Counter Stools” for our kitchen. She found a couple of pictures online that she like so I got busy. I used Southern Yellow Pine cut from 2×12x12’s from a local lumber yard. Their quality was so much better than from the Orange or Blue Boxes. Nice tight, straight grain with very few knots to work around. Construction was all dowels. Stain is “English Chestnut” by Minwax with satin poly. This was a fun project.

Nice looking stools Earl! I see you made saddle seats for more comfort! I did the saddle on my stools also. I think it makes them look more classy! Well done!
