Here is another recent build. I designed and built this set of three barstools to be sold through a gallery in Philadelphia. The seats are hand carved walnut and the bases are made of curly maple. The joinery is mortise and tenon and the finish is tung oil. The stretchers were particularly fun to figure out because they taper front to back but also curve upward in the other direction. Thanks for looking!

Wow! A Master Craftsman I would say. Outstanding and beautiful work! Very sexy looking stools also! Nicest looking stools I’ve seen in a long time! I give your work an A+ and you deserve the Editors Choice Award if you asked me!
Thanks for sharing!
