I like it. Finish it up and call it “Walking Table”.

DOH! Well if you can’t find another piece of walnut that matches well you could always just ship all of the pieces over to me!

Though I really like the design and hope you decide to finish it!!

That’s Sand it, spit shine it and send it my way. I’ll put the last piece on for you.

What piece is missing?

Too bad 3 of the legs aren’t a bit closer to center so the third could be lifted :-)) Nice work!!

Here is the finished “walking” stool. Still have a couple more coats of finish to apply.
Quite pleased with it and almost want to keep it rather than sell. Maybe I’ll be lucky and no one will buy it.
Thanks again for helping make a negative into a positive.

See there!!! That’s how art is created. If it didn’t have the character it’d just be another well made and pretty bench. Now ya got something to really talk about. “Mistake hell! I designed it that way.”

Sweet stool. If you have ever seen the movie “Beetlejuice” with Michael Keeton and Winona Rider in the 80’s it reminds me of a scene it it. I love the choice of wood and the jointery is top notch

Really nice looking walking table. That is a fantastic design, even if I say so myself. I love it. Great job.

is it artistic design or does it seem like one of the legs is going in the wrong direction?

Awesome project none the less – I love the walnut
