Just a couple of more stools. i decided to paint the bases and legs black on these. Typically use a high gloss poly finish on the tops.

Nice! I especially like the cubist top with the middle falling out. Very well executed effect!
Thanks for sharing.
Well done.

This made my day!! i never know what i will see here, but this makes today’s visit worthwhile. I am thinking you are using veneer and not solid wood to do the tumbling blocks center.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

I don’t if I would feel comfortable sitting on it or not… Looks like it might be kinda hard on my butt! LOL

Sure is pretty!

I think that’s the FANCIEST stool I ever did see!

Nice work!

Thank you all for the compliments. I use iron on edge banding. Made a jig which makes fast work cutting the diamonds. I have a small heat sealing iron I use. It’s really amazing how well that stuff bonds. And if you screw up all you gotta do is heat it loose. It’s a lot of fun. The hardest part is having to build the bases (the stools themselves) I’d rather just make the tops.
