I am sorry but I cannot post more pics. After uploading the third one, they all turn on their side. I think it is a problem with my photos.

After many years of making various stools, I thought I should make an effort at a new design.

The base of the new stool is similar to others that I have made, but the back rest is totally new.

The backrest is joined to the upright with a sliding dovetail. The base of the upright is half lap with a wooden pin to the two carriers that are fixed into the base.

I normally make a hand carved seat, but for this project, I made a variation of the Mario Jig with help from A1jim. It does not show in the photos, but the seat is deeper at the back than at the front by 20mm. I feel this makes it more comfortable for long sitting periods.

The base is joined together using through wedge Tenon.

The wood is recycled Green wood (my name for it as no one seems to know its true name) and the seat is the same. Funny but this timber all came from one post and the colour went from very dark to very light over a length of 7mts.

A big thanks to A1Jim for the help with the seat jig.

I missed your last post but this one came up in my email.

Really enjoy how your get the movement of the wood and the design of your chair working together.
