Just another bar stool top. Had some spare time last weekend to put this together. Simple and easy compared to some of the other stuff I take on. One more blank to go. 3 legs will go on these last 2.

Wow! Took me a minute to realize it was an inlay and not just a hole straight through! That’s awesome!

I was wondering why on earth you need square holes on a stool top…

Great illusion!

Bar stool? You are going to drive some drunk crazy… The design plays on your mind if you are sober. LOL

Great design, is there a plan available, or did you dream this up yourself after an inspirational beer or two? Thank
you for sharing.
