Completed March 2013. These stools are my interpretation of a Thomas Moser design. They are the perfect mate to the New Gloucester rocking chairs I recently completed.
I drilled an initial leg hole the wrong direction. Instead of trashing the blank, I cut the mistake out of the blank and accepted a stool that was 1 1/2” shorter than the intended length. There’s still plenty of room to rest your feet and the stool stores even easier under the rocking chair when not in use.
The second photo shows some light streaking in the finish. I used MinWax Wipe-On Poly for my rocking chairs a couple of months ago. I used the same container for this project. Unfortunately, the finish started to drag. Apparently, I need to buy a fresh can since the finish has likely started to cure with exposure to oxygen. I’ll either rub out the finish or put a final coat from a fresh can…
