Santa was a little late with these but he managed to finish them up. I made these for my wife for the island in our kitchen. We have bar stools now and she says they obscure the view in the kitchen. I found plans for building this in I modified the plans so I test my Festool Domino. Overall I’m impressed with how quickly you can put something like together using the Domino. The project was also a great way to test different finishing products.

My wife is quite happy with them. And you know what they say – “Happy wife. Happy life….”



I have a longer description of how I made them on my website.

Great job, you are correct. When our wives are Happy Life is so much easier.
