I made this stool as a practice piece for having legs splayed out at 5 degrees and making a formed seat. It was made from mahogany that was originally pool table frame that a friend rescued and delivered to me. I was working around holes left from its previous use. I wanted to make it narrow like the old Chinese stools which gave me the idea making one.
After I made it, my wife thought that it could function as her stool when she is sewing in the pull out cabinet in our hallway.
It was a good learning experience and a second one would go more smoothly. It was stained with ebony and followed up with early american with a wipe on poly finish.
