As part of an attempt to replace old and worn-out shop furniture, I recently made a round-top stool from the staves of a white wine barrel.
The stool seat is actually made of barrel staves laminated together, and then shaped with the band saw and hand planes. Supporting the seat is a high quality swivel mechanism.

I fashioned four legs to provide the support. The footrest is a barrel hoop.
The stool is finished in clear Varathane Professional Matte… three coats.
All the wood is White Oak.

Both the wine barrel table and stool are beautiful projects.
They both look well built and both are pleasing to the eye.

You say shop stool, but that could grace any bar just as easily. Very nice.
