This wood was under a river in Honduras for over 100 years they call it “Soaker Logs”. We picked it up locally in Crystal River Florida. The place has since gone out of business. Last year my husband Frank went to Chidwick School of Fine Woodworking in Stevensville, Montana http://chidwickschool.com/ Frank really loved taking Andy’s Bar Stool class, if you ever wanted to take your woodworking to the next level we suggest you take one of his classes. Just check out his web site or his posts on Lumberjocks. He’s made 3 bar stools so far. I’ll post them in the near future. The finish is Waterlox Original (medium sheen). On the bottom of the stool we put some Holly stringing from a tree our neighbors cut down.

This is some very pretty work. The wood is beautiful and the joints are tight and clean. That must have been a great class! too bad it is so far from me.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Wow! Awesome stool. Perfect! We can’t expect something else from you, Lori. I believe Sam Maloof will turn in his grave if he sees your stool! Great work!

Best,

Serge

That is a beautiful char. It is beautifully sculpted. I really like the integral sculpted foot rest.

Yes, I see some Maloof in this one – very nice stool. I have heard of those logs they are fishing out of rivers in Central America. A second chance at quality Honduras and other woods most though were gone.

Hi neighbor! What a beautiful chair. Outstanding work! I would love to be able to take some fine woodworking classes like that. One day maybe.

Wow! Great flowing lines! It just makes you want to settle down on this stool just to feel all of those flowing lines! Great job!
