This is what happens when it is too cold and rainy to work outside. Bring it in. :) This is a large, live edge log stool 21 inches in diameter, about 17.5 inches high. This stool has 4 legs rather than the traditional three. Why? I just wanted to that’s why. :) the newspapers tell you that this is a work in progress- Spar finish coat number 2 is on but is drying. You may notice that the top of the stool is a bit slanted- as in not level. I do this because my beer drinking stool sitting friends tell me that the slight slant makes sitting much more comfortable than on a perfectly level stool. I have also learned that the meditation stools often have a forward slant- for comfort and posture. So there it is. The legs do sit level :)

That’s a real nice one, rivergirl. I figured it wouldn’t take you too long to get over…. what was it you said you had? ....... sloitus? You just don’t seem like the kind of gal that would let anything get you down so I just said to myself “Well, this won’t last too long; she’ll be back to her old self in no time.” Well, here you are and looks like you’re going strong. That’s the rivergal that I know. Good work.

Actually this one is not as heavy as the last one I sold. The last one was oak, and weighed 60 pounds. This one is white pine, weighs about 45 pounds. :) The good news is,, it can support ALOT of weight. :)

Another nice piece! And I would add that your friends are right about a slight slope being more comfortable!
I believe that the most comfortable backless seat I have ever sat in is a saddle, slight slope, contoured to my rear, legs continuing the downward slope and knees apart really helps with proper posture!

Oh Alba- you silly goose. You can make one for yourself- far better than I could. You just need to do it. Did you see I added the meditation slant to the stool?
