« Part 5: Maloof Stool (the real one) makes Progress Part 6 of Furniture series Part 7: Maloof stool Rough Profile and glue up »

My Sam Maloof inspired stool has yet another error.

I am very disapointed that after making a prototype stool of which I had on the ground with me I find yet another really dumb error.

I have cut the front profile in reverse!

I was going to go inside for a beer to celebrate my days work when after a reply I realised the front profile was reversed!

How could one do this and after already making a prototype and having it with me at the time.

I think I must be going senile or something my memory and ability to recognise errors is starting to let me down

I even passed on the beer when I saw how stupid I was !

Instead I got the gear back out and started to fix the problem

I was going OK but the dark beat me

On the positive side at least I know what I am going to do tomorrow!!..... life is good !!

-- Regards Robert

It’s good to know I’m not the only one Robert. Maybe we should start our own country.

So, you used a template for the front profile?
Was the top of the template marked (something like “TOP” or “THIS SIDE IS THE TOP”)?
I only ask because mine are (does anyone even need to ask?)

And does the question mark go inside or outside the parenthesis (?)?

Hello again everybody

Pressed on this morning looking good!

Believe it or not I did use a template.

Not only that I had the prototype stool as well, so I modified the template accordingly

Thank you all!
