I just finished these a couple of days ago. Can you see the spider on the larger stool? Christmas will be here soon enough, and these are a lot easier to make than buckets! This is the first time I’ve used Permalac. It’s a great finish, and is supposed to hold up in the sun—we’ll see.

The metal work is fantastic as well as the tops :) One of my first paying jobs was at a blacksmith shop where we made reproduction ornamental hardware…Hinges , latches , etc..It was one of my favorite jobs that I’ve ever had : )

Great grain pattern match. The metal work is outstanding. A great look all around.

That is some pretty grain. Good selection and good project! Is Permalac a lacquer finish?

Beautiful. What type of wood did you use. The metal work is really cool also.
