Hello there all woodworker.
This is my latest project, Maloof inspiration Bar Stool. First I wish to thank a great woodworker who helped me with this project, I purchased from Scott Morrison the DVD set and the template in order to achieve this.
It is made out of black walnut, finished with 4 coats of tung oil, hand robbed with 000000 steel wool 24 hours apart.
Everything you need to know is said on the video, Scott tells you the tools you need, the finish you need and how to make this gorgeous stool , that is very confortable at my counter , ( that was before I oiled it) it is standing alone while everything sets dry and solid. I used tung oil, since I don’t have acces to the products Scott suggested, I had some advice for the finish touch and voila.
Feel free to comment, for those who enjoy hand woodworking, rasp file etc, this is the thing to do. I look good because of Scott, and walnut gives you pride to work with.

Have a nice day in your shop, my next one is comming.

Thanks for posting this beautiful stool.

I just finished a Maloof style rocker and now think a stool like yours will be next.

I gasped out loud..the breath literally left my body when I first laid eyes on this. Andrek! What a masterpiece! This is art, pure and simple. Beautifully conceived and executed. Bravo!

I have a picture of that exact stool from his website. I had the plans but a flood in my garage ruined everything except the template for the seat.
