Have a commission for a small dining room table and six stools out of White Oak. I’ve finished the table top out -It’s 1 5/8” Oak, 36” x 60” and started working on the stools – this is the prototype. I added a fading indent and Walnut buttons to give it a little “flair”, (I’ll use Ebony on the final). This was the sample for her to look at – this one will end up at my house – as all prototypes do – (which makes my house full of mismatching chairs and tables….), or at the shop. The legs are angled at 6 1/2 degrees which makes for a compact stable little stool – the through tenons help give more strength. The top rails use floating tenons cut on a 45 to meet at the corners. The seat is cut on the table saw….once set up, these are fairly simple to make and look pretty good!
