Found the plans in Fine woodworking Magazine. Scooped the seat using a skill saw, then steam bending the ends of the legs took some time but looks and makes the stool very stable. I made the seats with color , two pieces of walnut between maple set-of the looks of the seat, the foot rest is put in the leg square and I machined that out with a Rougher.

Looks great. But I have to ask: how do you scoop the seat with a skillsaw?

Great looking and sturdy stool. Besides the nice design I like that it is lightweight and comfortable too.

WOW, Doug. That is a very attractive and well made stool. That steam bending the bottom of the legs is a real nice touch!!

Cheers, Jim
