I decide to make six of these bar stools for my basement bar. They are made of walnut with maple plugs. The seat joinery is based on Maloof’s joinery. I have three of these completed with the other three built but waiting final shaping, sanding and finish.

No, I didn’t use any plans and the only templates I used were the ones I designed and created myself to help ensure each stool would match the others.

Great stools, thanks for posting. I love the look of carved furniture and want to get started. Do you recommend any printed or video tutorials?

Whoa! I can’t even imagine making one of something that nice. Beautiful workmanship… beautiful furniture.
