Well, it’s not actual walnut, just poplar stained to look like it. My church had a partition in the narthex of the building that was taken down to open the hallway up, and the lumber was given to me. I sat on it for a couple of years before deciding what to use it for, make the stool with it. The fist picture is the three pieces fit together on the lathe; the second is the three pieces separated; it was easier for me to turn them as individual pieces and then glue them together. The third picture is with stain on it and the last two are with a water based polyurethane finish on showing the top and bottom. I donated it to the church’s auction, which fetched $270, which ain’t bad. The auction was just last Sunday, good friends, good food, all around, a fun time. Hope everybody likes it, the stool, that is.
