this is a simple little stool i made for my wife in her craft room. its made from a walnut slab that i had, the legs are made of pecan, i dont like to have the stretchers go all the way across, i like there to be strength in the legs , so i cut a notch on the top and screw it all together, its a fun project to do if you have an extra hour to have some fun with, its finished with several coats of water base poly, thank you for looking at my project and thanks for any comments…grizzman

Cool Grizz. I’ve always loved those natural top tables, but this is the first one made as a stool that I’ve seen. Great idea and well done too!

That’s a beautiful piece !!

So … does a guy without a bandsaw use a scroll, or a jig saw to cut the curve in those skirts … or aprons … or whatever they’re called ? Nice little touch of elegance.

The top is just mesmerizing. Very cool !

Very nice Grizz. All of my crosscut slabs like that crack and split even though the trees are dead when cut. I really like how your slab is cut on a bias. Finish is impressive as I never had that kind of result with water based.
