Stool portion of a dining room table and “stools” am building on a commission for one of my favorite people (always like building for friends!). The stools are White Oak with Ebony accents. The seats are book-matched from one board to give a nice flow around the table. All through, blind or floating Mortise & Tenon: Fading indent gives a nice finished look to them. These are designed to last for generations. Finished with 4 coats of satin Poly – Fun Build!

Schroeder,
I really like the stools—I am planning on making on just like that for the shop, preparatory to making some for my kitchen island. But I have to ask, did you make the A & C/craftsman stair rails? They are awesome! They make me wish my house was a two-story!

Thanks! – Angled Tenons = Ugh!....was doing them in my sleep for a while! – The stairs are a copy of the G n G , but in Black Walnut. I was about to start finishing them up, but this project pays, so it went to the front of the line! – but when I get done with the stairs, if FWW sends me another rejection notice, I may consider burning their headquarters down! (not really NSA), but it has been a 3 year project….should turn out good when its done! -I’ll post it!

Very nice set of stools. I like the choice of materials and workmanship too.

Nice details. Love the shape of the seats. Great craftsmanship. Like the way you incorporated a little Greene & Greene into the legs.Thanks for sharing.

Those look great. This is one of my summer projects I am researching right now. Are they your own plans or did you have a source for them? Thanks

Nice work Oregon buddy! they remind me of the Rogowski stool, but with enough differences to make them your own. Tell me you own a multi-router for all that angled work…if not, you should look into one…
