I made a step stool out of alder. I decided to cut flames into the legs and the sides of the stool. For the finish i just applied tung oil to bring out the natural color of the wood. The top was 14” X 9”, legs are 7” X 9.5”, sides are 12.5” X 4”.

This is wild!
Are both ends and aprons identical to each other, or did you freeform them? I’m assuming you cut the flames on the bandsaw (as I don’t see any recessed cuts that would require a scrollsaw), yes?
That does not look like fun to dust!

Doesn’t look like fire wood though!
Cut on bandsaw or scrollsaw? Both?
