i built this height adjustable stool from the plans in a wood magazine a few years ago when my children were shorter and insisted on working at the bench with dad. i built 2, 1 for each child, and it led to many scrap wood builds. they were made from some beech i saved from a pallet and mahogany on one and the other was purple heart and maple.
the 3rd and 4th picture is a custom piano stool i made for a friend who wasn’t fond of a bench for his baby grand, so we designed the stool to have some similar traits of the piano. he loved it and takes it with him to recitals. it is made of maple with several layers of brown and red toned stains with a few layers of commercial spray lacquer.
