Honey wanted a stool to reach the upper cabinets in our kitchen and for the grandkids to reach the sink so I updated the plan slightly to match our cabinets. However now that she has seen Bloodwood she wants that on her new kitchen island top (yet to be built). Oh, the web we weave sometimes.
White oak, Bloodwood, Walnut plugs. Thanks for looking at my first posted project here.

I love the bloodwood, may I ask were you got it? and yes great stool, good workmanship, the walnut plugs is a nice touch.

This is a nice stool. The bloodwood is gorgeous. Combining it with the oak sets up a nice contrast.

Thanks for the post.

Senior Chief I got the Bloodwood from Woodworkers Source online. Around here we don’t have many resources for exotic woods. Very nice wood from them though and good follow through to my door.

Motthunter I used waterlox sealer and waterlox finish on the stool. I have not had a problem with my bloodwood fading yet. The supply I had ordered sat in my shop for several months and seemed to retain the color very well.

Thanks for looking. A small and simple project was fun for a change.

Nice proportions, great use of contrasting woods, lots of visual interest. Very cool.

LOML (love of my life). I usually have to google these things when I see them. I’m not up on them very well.
Thanks for the comments.
