This is a stool design I wanted to try out. It is made of poplar and finished with poly. The legs have a 3 degree angle. The height is 25”. I am keeping it as a guests stool in my shop. Thanks for lookin.

My question is the same as DocSavage’s. I have often contemplated how to carve out the butt imprint. I am jealous.

Very nice. Looks like some effort has gone into leg joints.
Seat looks amazing!
