The legs need to be a little wider, to lessen the tipping potential. But they are pretty comfortable.

They look great. How do you make the seats? I need to make some chairs for my house, but don’t know how to make the indents for the rear end.

Dennis I drew a line where I wanted the indent to start, then chopped out most of it with an old adze, found a good deal on ebay. Then took a scorp to smooth out the chop marks, also a good deal from ebay. Then an angle gringer with a sanding disc, and a palm sander to smooth out some more.

I am a bit confused as to how you did the swivel part.
Did you buy a part for that or was it home made?

And very nice stools. I like the rustic look
