I was looking at these for my daughter’s little table, seems easy and functional. I really like what you did with the red and black one.

They might still milk cows by hand, not in my supermarket though, HA HA HA. These look really nice, I am partial to the darker one , but I would take whatever you would give me, LOL

I like em! Did you make them on the lathe?

I am currently building some Windsor stools on my lathe with a bunch of 8/2 white oak strips I was given.

Hi Chris,

Yes, I made these on the lathe including the seats. Normally my Windsor chair seats are cut out with a band saw or a bow saw and shaped using a gutter adze, scorps, compass planes and spokeshaves.

Take care,
