It’s been a while since I posted the last project…. It’s not because I wasn’t woodworking, (actually I have been doing almost everyday!) but just didn’t have a chance to post them…

Anyway, here is some high stools for “singer songwriters”!

I will be participating in an group exhibition in 15 days now, and I am also singing in a concert there so there stools and the guitar stand, and the music stand will be used/shown in both of them.

The seats are black walnut, and the legs are pine. about 27.5 inches high.

I am also making some more projects, and will bring some other stuff I have already made, to the exhibition. But this will be my first time showing/selling woodworking projects, and looking forward to seeing how others think about my projects, what will be sold and what are not.

Very smooth, clean work!

I am new to woodworking and don’t always see the obvious. How do you make round tenons? The stools are beautiful. Thank you for posting and good luck with the exhibition.

Very nice stools and good joinery. Selection of wood is perfect. People will certainly like your products and they will sale like hot cake.

Wow, I didn’t think that I get so many comments, thank you everybody!
The contrast of black walnut and pine just came out very nice.

Pine is really soft and it’s so easy to make a round tenon with it. Many people here may use lathe, but I don’t have one, so I just use a knife and chisel. Draw lines where you want it to be cut, and just cut little by little. It’s much easier than you think.

“like hot cake”! Wow, that would be perfect! But they must be sold while it’s hot?
