Walnut and hard maple. That joint was a helluva lot of fun to cut. Here’s a link to the thread with some great drawings of the cuts for the joint. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/52333

Nice. I like simple things but sometimes increasing the complexity of a design is fun.

What kind of finish did you use?

That’s a very nice stool. I milked by hand when I was a kid. Our milking stool only had 1 leg centered on a round disc.

Great craftsmanship. I think the design is elegant.

Nice work, very beautiful stool. You should get a lot of conversation out of that joint!

Many Thanks. I should have mentioned, the stool is simply oiled with Mineral oil and waxed with Howard’s paste citrus shield. I generally finish most of my furniture this way. I like the simplicity of that sort of finish.

Very nice. You have put some time in the details. I can almost feel the satin feeling in my fingers. The colours are very harmonic.

Sometimes when I’m working with Black Walnut, I get the urge to bite it or chew on it…especially when it’s placed next to hard maple. Though I typically resist the urge, I can’t explain it.
