I needed a new stool for the shop and I had a client who requested I make her a set of stools with a low back. So I made this prototype stool out of some scrap qs sycamore and walnut. It still needs some tweeking but I am pretty happy with the results. I haven’t gotten the go ahead on the set but I am hopefull that my client will like this design.

Looking Good!
How about using a half dovetail on the front legs?

John,
This looks great! I am sure they will like it.

How do you like sycamore? I almost purchased some yesterday that had a great lace like pattern. Does it work easily?

Brian sycamore works pretty easy but you should use some fresh blades the flecks want to tear out …..I should take my own advice sometime. finished with bioshield hard oil.

I also intend to do something different wiht the front legs and the two braces that connect to the back legs. As I said earlier this is a prototype and will be my new shop stool.

Functional art at its finest John. Terrific concept and workmanship. I’m sure the client is very happy with this. Thanks for letting us see it.

VERY interesting. I’m not sure what influence I would put this under. Eastern, modern, etc, etc.
Gorgeous work, simple yet refined and functional. Hope your client chooses it!
