Hello fellow LJ’ers.

Just delivered these three bar stools to a semi-local customer. A custom detail was added (note the Cloud Lift on the lower stretchers). The client was very happy, and the celebratory drinks were flowing freely.

At the risk of a self-indulgent plug, if you would like to build these for yourself, you can find the video and templates by going HERE.

Enjoy the pics!

Very nice work, Scott. I’ve heard your name a lot from fellow LJ and friend Todd Clippinger. I was just on my way to his website to see if his interview with you was posted yet. By the way, what wood did you used for the bar stools?

Excellent design and craftsmanship Scott ! I have built alot of stuff but no chairs as of yet. Your chairs inspire me to build some (or at least try). My wife has dropped hints of new dining chairs. I guess I should start doing my research.

I can see myself having a couple of “Crowns” sitting in one of those! Nice work.

Nice touch with the ” cloud Lift” on the low stretcher. I’m all for breaking up uniformity and this is a nice shot at that. Well done!

I love the cloud lift. It really sets those stools apart.

Spectacular! Some dream about making a Maloof style rocker or chair and you have three in a row that are the style and more!

Absolutely Beautiful…........ Hope you have a well stocked bar, because who ever sits down in those chairs are not going to get up for a very long time.
