Not so simple stool

To create a stool sounds like a simple project but when sculpting the seat is involved, it becomes a whole new ball game. Personally, imagining or copying a picture with straight lines and implementing it is a way lot easier than implementing curves.

Legs are attached using a maloof joint, wood is acacia, and finish is a satin finish poly.

Wonderful looking stool. The finish is as great as the seat.
