These are 2 stools that were commissioned by a fellow artist I met at an art-festival we both participated in earlier this past summer. And these are the first stool/chairs I have made. I was a overwhelmed at first. But planing and full-scale drawings really make the job much easier.
The seats are 24” high so you can comfortably sit at the kitchen island. They are essentially taller chairs or shorter stools. She had just remodeled the kitchen and couldn’t find anything to fit the height of the counter. The job was supposed to be a high bench for her and her husband. But I felt it was going to look way to awkward, so we settled on 2 stools instead.
The vertical support for the backrest is dovetailed into the seat then screwed and plugged. Finish is tung-oil varnish mix.
