So here’s my 2nd attempt at a stool, I made the first out of hickory a week ago. This one is walnut and cherry, I’m saving to rest of my 8/4 walnut for two stools for the kitchen. I didn’t have enough walnut for the seat so I threw some cherry in there and also used cherry on the legs
I’m almost happy with this one, the final (if there ever is a final) version will be a little more sculpted and have narrower legs. This one has 1 3/4” legs, I think 1 1/4” would look better
Thanks for looking!

Thanks guys! I’ve only been at this for a few months but have learned a lot here. My wife hates the contrasting colors, I love it because it shows off the joinery. The kitchen set will be all walnut but I think it will still look fine!

- gargey

I used what I had, a 40 grit disc on an angle grinder, it took about thirty minutes or so. I’ll get something better for the next ass cracks

gorgeous stool and the maloof style joinery is spot on.i agree with the wife a little though i would have made the seat out of all walnut and the legs cherry.i agree with you on the legs i think your right in making them a little narrower.overall you did a beautiful job on this,congrats on the top 3.
