This project was my first time doing a carved seat bottom. I was not sure about doing it and how it would turn out. So I got a palette from work. There was maple, red oak, and poplar in the palette this is why I painted it to mask all the different woods.

I hand carved the spindles with a cheap home depot chisel years ago. Out of some 2” red oak dowels. They where for a different project and never got around to using them. The seat bottom was carved with a carbide head for a right angle grinder.

Nice job on hand carving the seat. The leaf theme is a very cute design for the stool. There is a book called 500 Chairs that has dozens of whimisical chairs or stools based on various types of vegetation and plants. You might find that interesting.
