A really good friend saw my last stool which was done for my wife and asked if I could make her one.

Here it is, made from mainly pine (not sure of the variety) with a butterfly shaped hole in the top as a handle.

Legs and stay are morticed in with Purple Heart wedges to hold everything in place.

Finish is Danish Oil and wax.
