Hi, here is a pair of maple bar stools. It was challenging to fit everything together and a real race against glue drying time while assembling. Thanks to Titebound 3 for the little break. I tought it would be nice to assemble the legs in a X shape and to match the seat size with the footrest. What to you think of the design? The finish is livos kunos oil.
Thanks for watching, commenting and sharing.

Thanks Chuck. I worked a lot on these and I’m really proud of what I did. I’d like to found a site that is more furniture oriented. To discuss and exchange. It seem like the main topic on LJ is shop org and tool mods which is not bad but maybe it will be a good to make at least 2 project categories? What do you think?

I really like these stools. They remind me of mid-century modern furniture – elegant, simple, attractive. I’ve looked through all your projects and really like them.

Question on the stool: How did you shape the seat of the stool? Did you just use a grinder to shape it? Or did you cope it on a table saw?

Thank you Dave the dude. I really like mid-century modern furniture. The shaping of the seat was done using a template and a router with a sled. Kind of leveling sled. Then the inner and upper edges lefted by the routing were rounded using an orbital sander and abranet 80 grain on a soft mirka pad. I’m not into coving on the table saw yet but I will take some time to experiment that soon.
