The legs have a nice shape to them. I like the walnut and maple combination used for the dowels.

Walnut and maple make a nice combination. I really like the lines on the legs and the stretchers.

So I’m looking at this project and thinking,” If I had one of those ‘big’ bandsaws…. I could do a project like this….” About your project, it’s inspiring. The wood grain pattern really stands out on the seat and the legs really have a great shape to them. Thanks for sharing! Michael

That stool looks awesome. You did a very good job with it.

I have plans to build that same one (actually I am going to do two). I would appreciate hearing any challenges or tips that you might have for making them.

Keep up the great work.
