Howdy woodworking doods,

By way of announcing the shipping of my Butterfly Joint Kit, here are a few shots of the project which is included in the kit as a DVD and Templates.

The last image is a closeup of the joint itself (from a different project), but shows the details.

The stool is made in Walnut, with 4 coats of Tung Oil/Wax. This particular piece was donated to a local charity, so I am building another one for myself to assist when putting my boots on in the mornings (I need all the help I can get).

Another beauty Scott! Clean, simple and elegant style with a gorgeous finish and I LOVE the butterfly joint!

Oh, neat !

It genuinely looks comfy, too !!

Nicely done.

As an aside, Scott ?? I get the feeling that you should reach out to the woodworking “Doodettes,” too :-)

Thanks for all the comments doods (and doodettes). Yes, the joint is my invention (after 2 years of design work).

Pommy – It’s not mdf. The template is made from UHMW, custom machined, as well as a custom made router bit, made in the USA. Plus there is a video and templates. All in all, I think it’s a darn good deal.

Everyone else, thank you for your kindness.
