These stools medium in height are my original design and first go at a curved top.
The stool legs are of Oak and joined together using dowel construction.

The tops are the highlight using laminated 3×1 maple and on the underside walnut.
I needed the half inch walnut underneath to add thickness and strength to the seat. Also the walnut would add a third color to the stools and fit with the 3/4 inch dowels through the seat tops.

I have a blog here on how I made a router sled and routered the curve in the seat tops.

Finished with Tung Oil, as the Tung Oil dries out over the next couple of weeks they will get buffed up with Carnauba Wax.

Thanks for reading and below a few pics of the construction process.

Thanks for the comments Ivan, Dick and Double Dave
Great to get comments after all the time these things consumed,
Made me realize just how much I could do with a larger and better set up shop.
Anyways I do get by.
Thanks again
Anthony

Cheers Pottz for the encouragement, and your right a small shop does make one better actually. Need to be more organised , methodical and think of more efficient ways. Thanks for calling the stools fine furniture.
Cheers

Thanks Tony,
Getting there on the sled, so bloody time consuming building these jigs though. But personally I still wouldn’t go for a CNC .
