« Part 1: Shop Stool Build-Off Part 2 of Shop Stool Build-Off series no next part

I made some alterations, became disgusted with it, and am returning back to the design. The first picture is the current incarnation. I have the foot rest off right now because I am leaning towards something different. I’m also considering redoing the top, making it adjustable and possibly more circular in design. A bigger change is thinning the legs down from 2.25” to 1.5”. Will see where it goes. The second picture was the direction I went in when I was fed-up with the design. To answer a few questions/comments from the first post.
Rhett and Ted78: I think adding a back might be a nice addition. I played around with a couple of designs today but couldn’t make it work. I’ll just have to see where the project tacks me.
rhybeka and Ted78: I do plan to soften the edges.

I can appreciate that you are trying to do something interesting design wise with this stool build and I’m sure it will be a beauty when you get it the way you want. Personally though, I prefer a simple stool with a round seat for the shop. Not interesting at all design wise, but easy to sit on and get off in any direction without any fuss.
