My first proper piece of furniture! Hard Maple and Walnut, all mortice and tenon joinery, bar the screws holding the seat to the aprons. Finished with Tung oil. Lots of mistakes made and lots of lessons learned but very happy over all.

Nice looking stool. That could go in a lot of places besides a shop since it was really well done and finished ;)

It is a bit over the top for a shop stool, but I wanted to better my joining skills rather than just pocket screw it all together.

Very nicely done. Looks good and should last a good long comfortable time.

Looks perfect to mee. Beautiful design with wood combination and curves. Joinery is fantastic – classic clean look.
