Cedar Stool - I got the Leftovers!

My son made a beautiful Natural cedar bar at their lake house! The slabs were 2” thick x 22” W x 10’ L and he had a few nice hunks leftover and he gave me one!
.

.

He gave me a nice short slab cut off (see photo) to take back to Florida with me after a visit with him and family in NC. I didn’t really need it or know what to do with it and double DD suggested me make a river table (good idea Dave no room here for that)!!! So for a while the slab was just collecting dust in the shop. Than I thought maybe Alan and Cathy would like a little stool behind the bar made of the same wood he made the bar from.
.

.

Well Anyway I made this stool using that thick 2” slab cut off. I dimensioned just enough wood to produce the stool!
I also put two purple heart inlays in the seat top; the color goes really well with the red cedar. Alan and his wife Cathy will put the finish on it.
.

Hope you like it!

Ummm Tony, How could it have been “collecting dust” when you don’t have any dust, anywhere! 8^)

Looks great! That wood can be tough to work with the usual defects.

Very “smooth”!

Very nice job Tony. I guess I wasn’t thinking when you said the stool for them was actually for the bar area. Good thinking. The seat looks plenty comfortable and will fit a variety of rumps. Is it glued together or are you waiting for Alan to share in the fun.

Thanks Dave!
Big rump or small it should fit them all! LOL!
I wanted to have a little shop time with Alan, Cathy and the twins when they come to visit this Fall so I decided to only glue up the side frames and not the seat and cross members. I’ll try to involve the family for the rest of the glue up!

Thanks pottz! I love leftovers! Some of this wood looks like a big slab of marbled meat! The smell gives it away though! I think I’ll put some of those Cedar chips in my closet! LOL!

Great gift – turned out so nice. You’ll have to post a picture once they apply finish. Sure looks like a lovely place to relax.

Nice work. With a bar that size you are going to need to make a few more though. ;)
