Seat made from spalted magnolia. Legs from ash. Both woods from trees felled by Hurricane Katrina. I scrounged the wood, cut it with my chainsaw mill, and air dried it.

Very nice. I have some nice spalted maple that I would like to use to make similar stools. What were the dimensions of the seat before you did the sculpting? I’m hoping that i have enough for three stools.

Very Cool. I love the profile you have on the seat. Pretty wood too!

Ampeater: The finished dimensions are 16 1/2 wide, 13 1/2 deep, 2 13/8 thick. The rough piece was not much bigger, as I recall squeezing these finished dimensions out of it. Good luck with your project!

Extremely nice. Love the seat. I’ve been thinking about building a similar one. How did you join the legs to the seat? Mortise and Tennon? Thanks for posting.
